Ice fishing on a fell lake
Kilpisjärvi is an excellent location for ice fishing. The village is surrounded by fells, and there are hundreds of small lakes and ponds, as well as rivers in the fell area. Water is clear and pure – and full of fish. The little lakes suitable for ice fishing are situated 5 – 30 kilometers from the village. Arctic waters give fish in abundance – trout, arctic char, and whitefish – and the local guides knows where to catch which. In addition to the ice fishing, also the net fishing is popular among villagers in winter.
Ice fishing on a sunny spring day is great fun. The excursion is made by snowmobile, clients sitting in the sledge. It is also possible to drive the snowmobile by yourself to the lakes. The chosen lake is located around eight kilometres from Kilpisjärvi. More Photos
