The Vaikko river


The Vaikkojoki river is a waterway of around 50 km in length, beginning in Juuka and finally flowing into the Kärenjärvi lake in Kaavi. The river continues for a further 20 km as a chain of lakes, to finish in the Kaavinjärvi lake. The route comprises around forty sections of rapids and fast flowing water. The whirls of water through the rapids provide great sport for the canoe enthusiast. Local businesses also organize descents of the rapids by boat (for groups) , an experienced guide at the steering oar. There are good mooring places along the river band where rambling routes are also marked. Every year the rapids are stocked with trout to provide sport for the fishermen. A fishing permit for the Vaikkojoki route can be obtained, e.g. from the local tourist enterprises. This entitles you to spinning, casting and fly fishing in the river and rapids.
