3 hrs. excursion by car
Daily departure at 11:00
A genuine outing with a local, who will show to best spend a lovely winter day.
You will learn the secrets of ice fishing from a local expert, your guide. Catch is not guaranteed, but most likely for patient fishermen. However, the most important thing is to enjoy the tranquillity and silence of the wintry forest. Possible catch will be prepared to a tasty snack by the campfire – have you ever tasted fish that is this fresh? If you are out of Fisherman’s luck today, there will still be a tasty snack for you.

What we say about this tour:
“Here in Lapland, whenever we can, we go out on a wilderness lake for ice fishing. The main thing is not the catch; it is the silence and the nature. It is like a break for every day life. Of course, we do our best to catch some fish too, as nothing beats the flavour of fresh fish fried by a campfire.
This excursion is a perfect relaxed outing for for friends, couples and families.”
