Rovaniemi Ice Fishing Itinerary
First thing in the morning we'll come and pick you up from your hotel and head to one of the prettiest lakes 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!
To feel like true locals we'll cross a frozen lake on snowshoes. After a quick run-through from the instructor, we'll put on these unusual shoes and cross the 2 kilometres of frozen water while enjoying unique, relaxing scenery.
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 learn how to start a fire; a complicated task in the frozen forests of Lapland!
Having been christened as expert fishermen in some of the most difficult conditions around, we'll take you back to your hotel in Rovaniemi.
