What to expect

After being picked up for the Snowshoeing and Ice Fishing experience in Rovaniemi, Finland and given proper winter clothing/boots (it can be as cold as -30°C in Lapland!), your guide will drive you around 20km away from Rovaniemi to find the perfect peaceful place to start your trip. Before heading into the forests, you will be given some instructions how to use the snowshoes and walk on snow. As you snowshoe through the quiet snowy landscapes, you will already feel the harmony of Lapland nature that surrounds you.

Soon you will end up in an immense open area made of ice and snow. It is time to find a promising spot on the lake and try to catch your lunch! Your guide will help you drill your own hole in the ice and will teach you the basic techniques how to ice-fish. Then, it is just a matter of time and patience before you can feel the first bites! This is just the perfect moment to appreciate the silence that reigns over the lake.

While you will be fishing, your guide will chop wood and prepare a fire on the shores for you. Some typical Finnish snacks and hot drinks will be waiting for you around the fire and will offer a convivial opportunity to your guide to answer all your questions about life in the Arctic and Lapland in general. If you manage to catch a fish (of a decent size), your guide will happily prepare it, cook it straight over the fire and add it to the menu of the day! If the fish are undersized, we will quickly return them to the ice without unnecessarily harming them.

After this ice-fishing experience, it will be time to put back on the snowshoes and head back to Rovaniemi!
