Activity description

Head out into the winter wilderness in Rovaniemi via snowmobile and try your luck at one of Finland's most beloved activities, ice fishing. Welcoming adventurers of all ages on this family-friendly excursion!

This tour takes place from Rovaniemi, the capital city of Lapland in northern Finland. This beautiful area is characterised by its remote nature, snowy forests and diverse landscapes. Snowmobiling is a great way to discover the Finnish Taiga off the beaten track. Ice fishing is also a traditional activity in Finland!

The excursion begins by meeting your guide in Rovaniemi (pickups are available from specified locations upon booking). After being driven to the snowmobile departure point, your guide will give you a safety briefing and introduction to snowmobiling. Locally produced snowmobiles that are easy to drive and environmentally friendly are used. You can either drive on a snowmobile in pairs, with one driver and one passenger and the opportunity to switch midway, or as a solo driver. This tour is open to everyone, children will sit in a sled pulled by the guide's snowmobile.

With your winter and snowmobile gear on, the adventure begins! You'll snowmobile through the winter landscape with your guide towards the ice fishing location. Make sure to take in the beautiful scenery that surrounds you as you drive over the snowy landscape. When you arrive at the frozen lake, the guide will drill a hole and help you set up your fishing equipment. Then, the fun begins!

Although catching a fish is never guaranteed, you'll relish the peacefulness of the wintry surroundings. If luck is on your side, a fish will take the bait, which the guide will happily prepare for you. You have never tasted anything so fresh and delicious! After your ice fishing fun, hot drinks and snacks will be provided, as the guide shares stories about the history of the region. At the end of the tour, you will be transported back to Rovaniemi.
