Kapeenkoski is situated in a protected nature reserve and hiking area. The Kapeenniemi recreational area is free for everybody to visit or even stay overnight by a campfire. The company is professionally run producing nature friendly accommodation, fishing, sauna and other activities for groups. One of the most interesting activity is riverboarding.

Riverboarding - or hydrospeeding) - through four rapids is an experience worth remembering! Riverboarding is not just floating and letting the river take you down, it is active sports. It can be done in winter, too, with weather restrictions, but in winter it is enough to try it through one rapid only. You have to be over 12 and you have to be able to swim - other restrictions do not exist. Minimun group size is 6, I think, and maximum 16 at one go, and you have to reserve the experience in advance.
