About Us

Tavinsulka Canoe Tours was founded in 1989 by Seppo Elonheimo, who has been an enthusiastic paddler since the 1950's. The canoe rental was a new thing at that time in Central Finland and it took time that people found the opportunities hidden in the canoes. Through the two decades our fleet has grown and became versatile. At the most our guides escorted 1200 people during one week. In 2008 Tavinsulka Canoe Tours lived the generaton change and Béla Pavelka took charge. Béla started his paddling carreer in 1980 and achieved international successes as member of the Hungarian National Team. As tour guide he paddled the rivers of Hungary, Swiss, South Africa and Brasilia, but mostly he has been working for Seppo in Finland. As tour guide today Jussi Kalliola is helping at Tavinsulka. Jussi has long guiding experience in the Finnish wilderness on skis, by foot and in canoes.
