Venture only a few kilometres from Turku centre up stream of the River Aura, and you will come to the splendid Halistenkoski Rapids.
The Halistenkoski Rapids are a popular fishing spot from which anglers can catch Roach, Bream and Perch, and fly-fishermen are able to snare Trout, Rainbow Trout or Atlantic Salmon.
Here you can also begin a canoe ride and see the cultural landscape of the River Aura, a highly recommended activity. Close to the Halinen bridge is the Miller's House where you’ll find the River Aura Information Centre. Here you can rent a canoe, collect brochures, buy a fishing license and souvenirs, or just enjoy a cup of coffee and explore the river environment.
