Canoeing and Rowing
The rivers in the Utsjoki area with their gorgeous scenery are great for canoeing. There are no marked canoe routes in the Utsjoki area. The river Utsjoki with its many lakes is great for canoeing from the southern part of Lake Mierasjärvi down to the River Tenojoki. The River Teno can be travelled in a canoe from Karigasniemi all the way to Tenovuono Fjord. Both rivers have some shallow but rocky rapids where it might be necessary to transport the canoe along land or guide it down-river from the shore. Rowing is possible in many rivers and lakes in Utsjoki area.
