Rainbow trout ice-fishing near Levi, Finland

ICE FISHING TOUR BY CAR, SNACK AND HOT DRINK BY THE OPEN FIRE, LEVI


We will pick you up at the Safarimarket office in Levi, where you will get dressed in warm overalls. Then, we will drive you by car to the nearby ice-fishing location. Upon arrival, you will receive special fisherman’s boots, warm mittens, and a hat to keep you warm and dry during the fishing trip. We will walk a short distance to a small lake, where our guide will give you brief fishing instructions. You will receive your fishing gear and start fishing!

The lake is stocked with rainbow trout, which are usually quite easy to catch. However, fish activity depends on the weather, and in December, due to the short daylight and polar night conditions, the fish may not be very active. We will spend about two hours fishing before taking a break to warm up by the fire and have a snack.


If you’re lucky enough to catch a fish, our guide will help cook it for you over an open fire in the traditional Finnish way of ‘fire-glowing.’ The fish is filleted, pinned to a wooden board, and placed vertically next to the fire flames for about 40 minutes, giving it a natural fire glow and a slightly smoky taste. It’s the best fish meal you will try in Lapland.


In case of no catch, we will offer you a tasty local snack and a warm drink.

During the fishing, you can always warm up in a lean-to by the open fire, which is right by the lake. Our guide will share stories about fishing traditions in Finland. If you wish, you can also take your catch home in a bag.
