Winter fishing in the area


After the darkest polar night begins the best ice fishing season as the days grow longer, and continue till the ice melts. Some years the season lasts as late as till midsummer. 


Arctic char, the most beautiful fish of the mountain lakes, is also the most wanted catch for ice fishing. Winter fishing is very popular, and it is a fine way of relaxing. To guarantee a nice ice fishing trip we recommend transport and catering services.
