The voting has been closed on Sunday 17th April 2016 and people have voted the last Saturday of July for this year’s event.
Kaljakellunta 2016 Event on Facebook
Starting point: Heureka Science Centre or Tammisto
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 Tammisto in 2016 as it started from Heureka in 2015.
However, many participants have complained that the Tammisto route is not ideal as the river barely flows at this spot, making the floating difficult if there is any wind. Therefore, a voting will be orgnanised for the route as well in 2016.
Traditional floating routes
Since 1997 the floating routes have been alternating between these two routes, which you can see on the maps:
Route option 1: From Heureka to Kirkonkylänkoski:[put_wpgm id=3]
Route option 2: from Tammisto to the Pikkukoski beach [put_wpgm id=4]
