Ice fishing is a popular pastime in Finland, and visitors to Lapland can enjoy ideal frosty conditions.
Guided excursions can be arranged from most of our resorts. Set tours are usually your best option, as you will be shown the top locations to cast your line and provided with the special equipment and bait required. It’s also the safest choice, as guides will be able to determine secure areas where the ice is thick enough to support your group.
Fishing holes will be cut in the ice and anglers usually sit on a stool while dipping either a line or spear into the water below. Many trips also include snacks and warm drinks by a campfire to keep the cold at bay.
