Ice fishing, or as we say pilkki, is a popular hobby in Finland. This ice fishing trip heads 20 km from Äkäslompolo to Lake Rautujärvi, which is a good location for catching trout, whitefish and arctic char. After drilling a hole to the ice and getting your fishing rods ready we try our luck in catching fish. During the trip we enjoy coffee, hot berry juice and sausage by an open fire.
To go fishing, you'll receive your thermal outfit, a fishing rod, a drill and your fishing license. Now you're ready to catch some northern treats!
Trouts are underwater chameleons. They can perfectly adapt to any circumstances. They survive in big lakes and small rivers, in cold or warm water and they can even adapt their skin colour to the environment. To catch one of these is every sport fisher's dream.
