Snow shoeing and Ice Fishing Tour
The smaller the group the bigger the experience, as listening to the wilderness is better done in silence.
This tour allows you to really feel what it is to head into the Arctic to try and find some food. We will Snow Shoe across a frozen lake in order to get to the perfect spot for Ice Fishing.
During this tour you will learn basic survival skills and fire making skills along with learning how to walk in Snow Shoes!
We will drive 20 Kilometres north from Rovaniemi into the Arctic circle, then walk for up to 2 km across a frozen lake. Once we have arrived you will be shown how to prepare and light a fire. Once the fire is alight and warm we will head back onto the ice to learn how to ice fish. You will drill your own hole into the ice, which can be 1 m thick by January. You will get to know the tactics you need to be a successful ice fisher.
This is also a great opportunity for those of you who are photo enthusiasts!
Please inform us if you have any dietary requirements!
Ice Fishing Tour
The ice fishing tour is one that teaches you to appreciate the environment in different ways. Ice fishing is a great way to experience the silence of the wilderness while attempting to catch dinner. As soon as a fish is caught we will prepare it and cook it straight over the fire. The tour also gives you an insight into the difficulties people in the Arctic areas have had over the ages to simply get food.
Your guide will explain how the local people fish with nets under ice that is up to a metre thick and you will also get to try and drill your own fishing hole.
