Ice Fishing with Expert - Departure 13:00
In northern Norway the hunter/gatherer lifestyle still lives strong as we like to pick, hunt or fish our food.
Fishing is the way of life for a lot of people in Norway and its also a precious leisure activity for even more, both summer or winter. Especially winter ice fishing is popular and around easter time, when the weather gets milder, you may see locals on skis and snowmobiles all over the mountain lakes, rod in hand - fishing. Now YOU can take part in this ancient northern tradition! Sink your line down through the fjord ice and wait for the bite. Will this be your lucky day?
With thousands of lakes throughout the unspoiled nature and the Arctic Sea at our doorstep, Kirkenes is one of the best places in Norway for ice fishing trips. On the Snowhotel guided ice fishing trip we will dress you up warmly and head out by snowmobile sleigh to the frozen fjord. Our fisherman guide will pull you sitting in a sledge by the steering wheel of a snowmobile.
Once arrived to the fishing spot, your fishing guide will drill a hole through the thick ice as you prepare your fishing gear. In the fjord there are numerous types of fish, we have even caught salmon! But the most common catch is cod - Norway's number one fish and as important to economy as oil or hydropower. If you are lucky, your guide will cook your catch for you after the tour.
On a winter travel to Norway, ice fishing should definitely be on your schedule!
