Ice Fishing

The famous salmon river Teno, its tributaries and wilderness lakes offer fishing experience to remember.

Fishing experience of a lifetime

Ice Fishing is the arctic form of meditation. Trout and arctic char lure many fishermen to the fells of Kaldoaivi and Paistunturi in the winter. To have a cup of hot drink while fishing at a frozen lake is a great winter experience as well as a glimpse to the local life.

We recommend ice fishing with local guide for the best and safe experience.  If, however, you choose to go fishing on your own, you need to ensure that you have the needed permits for that certain fishing area. For assistance, please contact Siida Nature Centre. You can read more about safety on ice here.

Utsjoki is an area known for its clean and beautiful nature. Please keep it that way and leave your surroundings free of any trash and take with you any gear or trash you take to the nature. Please do not kill any fish if you’re not planning to eat it – the local way is to only take what you need.
