Full description
Learn the art of ice fishing from a local guide and experience the Arctic magic. Enjoy a short 5-10 minute walk through an old forest before arriving at an open area full of ice and snow as far as the eye can see.

During this tour, you will experience a cultural activity that locals take part in every day to catch food for themselves and their dogs. As soon as you catch a big fish, it will be cooked straight over the fire. If the fish are undersized, they will always be returned to the ice.

Join this tour to gain insight into the difficulties people in the Arctic areas have faced throughout the ages to simply get food. Your guide will explain how the locals fish with nets under the ice that are up to a meter thick and you will also get to try to drill your own fishing hole.
