Full description
After meeting your guide at the Santa's Hotel Santa Claus, travel out of Rovaniemi to your location for the day. Once there, join your guides for a truly Finnish experience as you go ice-fishing on a frozen lake.

You’ll get to pack your own fishing gear from scratch and choose the winning lure to attract the fish. Once packed, make your way to the frozen lake just as the locals Finns do, after which it is time to drill a hole through the ice and lower the bait.

Lay down on the reindeer skin, enjoy a hot drink by the fire your guides have built for you, and simply wait for the perch and other freshwater fish species to hopefully find their way to your lure. Once your experience has concluded, your guides will return you back to your tour starting point.
