KOHINA is a white water kayaking club, founded in 2006 in Finland. You can find the members of KOHINA where the rapids roar: Kymi River, Vanhankaupunginkoski in Helsinki, and Neitikoski in Lieksa, as well as in the rapids of Norway. Our base camp is located on the Kymi river, and is in active use during early May to mid September. During the winter, our activities take place in Helsinki and its immediate surroundings.
Every year KOHINA organizes the iceBREAK whitewater kayaking event at the Vanhankaupunginkoski rapids in Helsinki. Next time we will be breaking the ice in April 2013.
KOHINA organises whitewater kayaking courses and kayaking trips for all ages.
In order to gain the most out of our precious hobby, KOHINA built a base camp, Kontti, on the shores of Kymi River at Pernoonkoski. Kontti is made up of a club room, which can be used for courses, meetings, relaxation and accommodation, and a kitchen, sauna, toilet as well as plenty of storage for kayaks.
KOHINA is a member of the Finnish Canoeing and Rowing Federation.
KOHINA is a Finnish word for the roar of whitewater.
