Ice Fishing

Guided introduction to ice fishing for beginners

Ice fishing is an adventure of its own. Drill a hole through the thick ice with an auger, bait the hook and wait for a bite and catch a perch or a whitefish! Try your luck and see if you can a match the Lappish fishermen. Our guide will take you with a car or a minivan to a safe place on a frozen lake and explain you how the basic ice fishing gear works.

What is the activity about

The beauty of ice fishing lies in its simplicity. A session of ice fishing could almost be counted as a sort of meditation. Whilst waiting patiently for something to happen – your mind clears itself unexpectedly and effortlessly. Infinity and silence are the key factors here. Catching fish is a bonus, not the purpose.
