Have a unique experience in the Arctic! On this tour you'll learn how to start a fire in the cold and you'll ice fish like a true local.
Rovaniemi Ice Fishing Itinerary
We'll come and pick you up from your hotel at the selected time and head to one of the prettiest areas in the Arctic circle. During the approximately half an hour journey we'll enjoy the snowy scenery and fir tree forests of northern Rovaniemi. The natural beauty of the world's coldest city will leave you lost for words!
Having found the perfect spot on the lake, we'll dig a hole in the ice and wait for a fish to bite onto the hook. During the winter months, the layer of ice in northern Rovaniemi can reach a depth of up to one metre. Our guide will tell you all about the technique and tricks needed to fish in the Arctic ice. All you need to worry about is being patient and enjoying the unique surroundings.
The guide will then head to find some wood to prepare a lakeside bonfire, and you'll learn how to start a fire; a complicated task in the frozen forests of Lapland! When the fire's lit we'll cook our catches and enjoy the warmth. What a treat!
Throughout the tour not only will we enjoy unique, magnificent landscapes, but we'll also go home with some incredible photos of us ice fishing in Lapland as well as a cultural insight into the local lifestyle! Having been christened as expert fishermen in some of the most difficult conditions around, we'll take you back to your hotel in Rovaniemi.
