To others ice-fishing is a way to get food, to others it’s torture and then there’s people who think it’s like meditation.
Nevertheless it’s fun and exciting. In the week program’s ice-fishing excursion we go by foot to Lake Patalahti, drill holes in the ice, drop the bait and if we are lucky catch some fish to be grilled by the campfire. Fresh air will provide rosy cheeks.
Lucky Fish company arranges also longer ice-fishing tours to Lake Päijänne. 3 – 5 hour program includes fishing licenses, tools, equipment, professional fishing guide services, a camp fire to make hot sausage, coffee or tea.
You will also get to see a sample how to fish with under fish traps. Minimum 2 persons. Transfer can be negotiated if needed, out-door toilet available.
