Thinking this is boring? Far from it! Our guide Maiju was amazing and she is quite funny! We bonded from the moment she picked us up at the hotel. After a 25 minutes drive to a beautiful lake, we were given everything needed for the adventure. My partner and I were armed with needed fishing gear, gloves, warm drink and a rucksack with a little stool to sit on whilst fishing. We were extremely lucky with the weather. No clouds in the sky made the walk through deep snow on the lake even more magical. We were able to drill our own hole into the lake, which def. keeps you warm. I was lucky to catch a fish which was then bbq’d in their Teepe. We also had some sausages and marshmallows. Maiju also took professional pictures of us and offered to teach us how to do the same. Overall this trip was unexpectedly amazing and I can only recommend it!

This is really great experience and be one of the best activity in Finland!!. Snowmobile is super fun and it is a long journey (about 40 KM) along with amazing view (luckily, the weather is also nice). Ice fishing is our new experience even we did not catch any haha. Our tour guide (Svarva) is really nice, friendly, supportive. He teach us how to drive the snowmobile, do the local snow fishing and make us really delicious lunch (reindeer soup with potato bread and berry juice). Recommended!!!

Really great!! I would recommend to anyone who is traveling in Lapland. The guides were really nice and very well organized. The mix of snowmobiling and ice fishing was terrific.
