Day 3 Salmon Fishing at Tornionjoki

Experience Tornionjoki – the longest free-flowing river in Europe, famous for its big Atlantic
salmon and whitefish.

Fishing techniques


More than 500 kilometers long, Tornionjoki River is located on the border of Finland and Sweden and is an important spawning river for salmon of Bothnian Bay. Tornionjoki is famous for big salmon; the intermediate catch was xx kg during the fishing season in 2022.

During the day at Tornionjoki River, you can try the most traditional Finnish way of salmon fishing: rowing. Step on board the traditional riverboat as our expert guides will row you to the mid-stream
to find salmon. Lower your lure into the river and wait as your boat is rowed to the best locations to
maximize your chances of catching the salmon. Sense the river’s power when the boat slowly descends with the stream while your lure swims in the water, attracting the catch.

While you wait for your turn for the boat, you can try to spin fishing and fly fishing from the bank to try your luck with salmon, grayling, and pike. Migrating whitefish are resting in the stream pools, graylings are hunting insects and smaller fish, and pikes and perches are preying on the edges of the shallows.

Day 4 Trout Fishing at Private Wilderness Lake

Experience fishing like you have never done before: on a private Lappish wilderness lake under the
24/7 sunlight, also called Midnight Sun!

Fishing techniques


Our destination, the private Wilderness Lake, is located in the middle of a nature conservation area and is only accessible via a handful of responsible fishing trip organizers. While our small group is there, the lake is for our private use. And what’s best, this lake is well-known for its hefty brown trout but also pike and whitefish.

This calm wilderness lake is genuinely a fishermen’s paradise where the calm lake surface is broken only by the silver fins of the brown trouts. Here you experience a serene summer night with no noise, only the call of the Arctic loon and other wildlife sounds.

Step on one of our fishing boats and head out to the lake to find the best catching spots. Lower your lure in the water and troll around the lake to attract the predatory fish’s attention.

You can also try your luck from the shoreline with a spinning rod or wade a bit further to the shallow for fly fishing.

When you feel like resting from the fishing and gathering energy for the next venture to the lake, you can go ashore to our camp for a barbeque dinner and have a cup of coffee prepared for you on the open fire.

During the day and night, you will:
