Welcome to the heart of the Archipelago Sea National Park!
Described as the most beautiful archipelago in the world, it offers great paddling opportunities in an ever-changing landscape of large outcrops, sheltered rocky hills, vibrant island villages and thousands of islands.

Paddling Academy is the local sea kayaking operator in the Archipelago Sea. We live and work in the middle of the Archipelago Sea. Our offices are located on the islands of Nötö and Korpo and we focus on the Saaristomeri National Park area, which allows even short trips to access the stunningly beautiful archipelago.

A night camping trip. A great experience.
Gabriel is so charming as a person that it makes the experience all his own. We could not have wished for anything more. (Well okay, more time to float in this bubble, so next year I'll book a whole weekend for this ❤️) My heart is truly moved. A wonderful experience!

What a great sunny weekend behind us! Kayak Tour in calm weather, small waves and some bigger waves. Paddling in incredibly clear water. What a great start to a holiday! Thank you Moving Heart!

Sea kayaking weekend tour

A couple of days of very different landscapes, emotions, winds and conditions and a night on a desert island. Gabriel guided our group with his diamond-like professionalism and sunny attitude to enjoy the relaxing bays and also to challenge themselves safely. I can warmly recommend indulging in the seduction of the Heart Stream!
