Ice Fishing Excursion
2,5 hour program with a campfire snack.
The beauty of ice-fishing lies in its simplicity, it’s quietness and peacefulness one can find whilst sitting on Viiksjärvi Lake. Ice-fishing with us can almost be counted as a sort of meditation. Whilst waiting patiently for something to happen – your mind clears itself unexpectedly and effortlessly. Infinity and silence are the key factors here.
The basics of ice-fishing are very simple. All you need is a lake that is frozen. Even five centimeters of ice is enough to hold the weight of a human being. Once you’ve chosen your fishing spot, you need a core drill for making a hole in the ice and the fishing gear to catch the fish. This is where our guides come into it, providing you with all the necessary equipment and sharing their experience for choosing the right spot on the lake. Catching a fish is not guaranteed but for the patient fisherman, the wait could be worthwhile.
Whilst you try your luck at fishing the guide will make a fire on the ice or the shoreline of the lake where sausages are grilled and warm juice served. If you catch a suitable sized fish we will grill that together.
