~ 3 hours
You’ll be collected from your accommodation in Central Rovaniemi and driven to a secluded lake about 20-30 minutes from the city. After you arrive, you’ll be given all the warm clothes and equipment needed for what’s ahead.
When you’re ready, you’ll wander onto the thick layer of ice covering the lake. Your guide will help you drill a hole through the ice and will give you tips about how to best attract grayling in the frigid conditions. The groups are small, so you’ll get plenty of individual attention from the guide and you can ask as many questions as you wish. Pro Tip: Techniques that you might have learned/seen from fishing in warmer weather won’t necessarily work!
You’ll spend the next hour sitting on the tranquil frozen lake with your rod in hand. While the ice fishing is the main event, the surrounding nature is beautiful and peaceful. So be sure to take a moment to soak in the relaxing atmosphere as you chase a bite.
After an hour, you’ll head back to the shore to warm up. You’ll get some hot snacks and drinks and can enjoy them by an open campfire. It’s a great opportunity to relax in the quiet wintry forest and to take some photos of your beautiful surrounds. You can cook anything that you’ve caught over the campfire too!
Finally, you’ll jump back into the comfortable minivan for the return trip to your accommodation in Central Rovaniemi.

1. Start with thermal underwear and warm socks.
2. If it’s really cold, –20 or below, wear an additional fleece layer on top of your thermals. Another pair of socks, preferably woolly or thermal, will keep your feet warm.
3. Wear pants with thermal lining. Don’t underestimate the importance of a neck warmer or a scarf. Slip into your winter boots and do them up well.
4. Almost done! Throw on your winter jacket, put on a warm hat and thermal gloves. Don’t forget to tuck your gloves into your sleeves and zip your jacket ALL the way up
