This is the official Kaljakellunta in the capital city region.
Kaljakellunta is traditionally organised either on Saturday 25th July or on Saturday 1st August. This year the participants have voted the 1st of August for the date of the event, which usually starts around 11am and most people have their boats in the river before noon.

Starting point: Heureka Science Centre
See how to access the start and ending points by car and public transport in the Access & Transportation section.
The floating route varies year by year, but usually it starts either from Tikkurila in Vantaa behind Heureka Science Center, or from Tammisto in Vantaa. Traditionally, the routes alternate between the two options each year, so by this logic the Beer Floating will start from Heureka in 2015 as it started from Tammisto last year.
Route 1: From Heureka Science Center to Kirkonkylänkoski
