This exciting swim takes place in the Pajakkakoski rapid in the centre of Kuhmo. The preparations for the swim include dressing in thermal underwear and a rescue suit with assistance from your guide. The first step is to get used to floating in the river and then the safety procedure and matters related to swimming down the rapid are explained. After floating in the quiet water, the participants swim down the rapid all together with the guide. After that it is possible to swim also one by one. There are rescuers at the bottom to make sure everybody gets out of the water safely. The experience is completed by having warm toddy, fireside coffee and receiving a diploma at the tepee below.
