About
Driving northbound (20-30mins) into the Arctic Circle is where the adventure begins as your guide helps you strap in your snowshoes and shows you the skills and way over the heavy snow. From then on traveling will be by foot, traversing through virgin forest to the frozen lake destination. Learn how to ice fish by learning how to drill your fishing hole with your guide. Learn how to use other special tools, and learn some local techniques on how to catch fish. As you enjoy the peace of ice fishing, your guide will turn back to the bank of the forest to start a fire and later a light lunch of smoked salmon. Grilling your catch from the lake is also possible although many opt for catch and release. Note:  For children too small to wear snowshoes, sleds (toboggans) will be provided.

Nice overview of ice fishing and snowshoes
Mar 2020 • Couples
We had a nice time with our French speaking guide. We had the whole tour booked just for both of us. Our guide was warm and welcoming, eager to share his love for Lapland. We had a nice snowshoes walk in the forest, where he showed us how to see animal steps in snow. It was our first time with snowshoes, so our guide was very helpful and taking good care of us. We felt safe. We had a warm break around a fire drinking hot berry juice. Then we went to a lake where we tried to make holes in the ice but the lake was not deep enough for fishing. After few attempts, our guide made us a lappish BBQ with salmon, sausages, corn and sandwiches for lunch and we went to another lake. Unfortunately, no fish that day but a really lovely time.
