Guided ice fishing trip to the lakes, ponds and sea

During the winter, everything Finland’s countryside is completely frozen. In the middle of winter, all the lakes and rivers are frozen, but you can still enjoy fishing.
This trip takes you ice fishing on the sea, lakes and ponds. As well as trying your hand at ice fishing, you can also try net fishing under the ice, get on a snowmobile ride and watch local fishermen seine fishing, which is a traditional technique involving a net. Our skilled, professional guides will teach and help you with fishing.
There’s also plenty of free time for you to enjoys walks in the frozen countryside; explore a historic area best known for its iron works; and try skiing or snowshoeing.
Enjoy the local cuisine and sleep in stylish hotel rooms featuring furniture designed by the famous Finnish architect Alvar Aalto.
There’s also the chance to enjoy a traditional Finnish Sauna – are you brave enough to take a dip in a hole in the ice afterwards?
