Ice Fishing Tours in Rovaniemi Lapland

Try local winter fishing and a typical way of spending free time in Lapland, Finland!

Ice Fishing Tours in Apukka Resort Rovaniemi

(29th November – 5th April)

This is where the journey to the Finnish mindset begins from. Step into the shoes of a Finn on trying one of the most popular local winter things to do – ice fishing!

These excursions are a great chance to learn why we still value our personal space beyond reasonable measures in Lapland, where we have more reindeer than people.

You can choose if you go to the lake by snowmobile, reindeer sleigh, or foot – all these are used by the locals too. Well, the reindeer sleigh is not the most typical transportation nowadays, but it used to be the only one back in the day.

The first thing is to find the best spot on the frozen lake. Then it’s time to drill the hole into the thick ice cover with a special ice drill and prepare the fishing equipment. After all these preparations, you can try your luck at catching the fish. The catch is not the main point, though. The most important thing is having a great time outdoors with nice people.

All our activities start from Apukka Resort, Tutkijantie 28, 96900 Rovaniemi.
