Let's go catch dinner! Fishing trip on Lake Kilpisjärvi

Kilpisjärvi is a unique alpine lake in Arctic Lapland

Lake Kilpisjärvi, a unique alpine lake in Finnish Lapland, is surrounded by Arctic landscapes of three countries. Join us on a fishing trip and catch your own dinner! 

The duration of the trip is 4 hours. The trip is organized from June 15 until August 31, weather conditions allowing. 

Fresh fish for dinner, anyone?

Planning to have a dinner of fresh fish in the privacy of your vacation rental? Even though the local supermarket is well-stocked, it sells no fresh fish because the locals tend to catch their own.

So if you want fish for dinner, get ready to catch it first! Don't worry if you don't know the first thing about fishing, because this is a perfect opportunity to learn the basics, in the company of a knowledgeable local guide (who always catches his own).

A boat ride, net fishing and angling with hook & line

The excursion starts with a boat ride from the village shore. Fishing with nets is the exclusive right of the residents, and here's your chance to participate in this experience.

You can also try your luck with a hook and line. The guide will help you with each step. And if you don't care to touch the pole, no woriies, you can just relax and admire the surrounding scenery.

And are we going to catch something? More often than not there is a catch in the nets. It may be the treasured arctic char, it may be whitefish or grayling. Yet, we can only guarantee the fishing, not the catch!

Campfire picnic

All food tastes best in the great outdoors, particularly around a campfire.  A Finnish-style picnic with roasted sausages, sandwiches and home made pastries are served and fishing stories are shared.

Private tour for you and your party

You can book this tour for a private party of 1 - 4 persons.

Our online shop for summer 2023 will be opened in April.
