Full description
Make the most of your stay in Rovaniemi with an outdoor experience that includes traditional Finnish ice fishing and husky sledding. Start your day with a hotel pickup and travel to Parpalandia to begin your Lapland adventure. Learn about ice fishing, get familiar with the equipment, and find out the best techniques for catching fish in winter. Then, try your hand at ice fishing and, with a little luck and some patience, catch your own salmon. Next, join an experienced musher as they teach you about husky sledding before the husky teams are brought out. Hop on your sled, hold on tight, and feel the strength of the pack as they pull your sled through the Lappish countryside. After the ride, head to a Kota for some refreshments. Enjoy sausages, bread, cookies, and a hot beverage and if you were lucky enough to catch a fish, you can have it smoked here too.
