Know More about this tour

Wrap up well and make your own way to the snowmobile center in Rovaniemi, or enjoy a pickup from one of the selected hotels outside of town and travel to the center by coach by minivan.
When you arrive, meet your friendly guide, put on your supplied thermal suit and helmet, and get a safety briefing and instructions on riding your 2-person snowmobile. Once you feel comfortable, set off behind your guide.

Pick up speed and take turns to drive or ride pillion. Zip through the wilderness and race along the frozen Ounasjoki River, passing icicle-hung trees and frosty riverbanks. Continue up a wooded hillside and zoom through snowy fields to a small wilderness lake.

Park up your snowmobile at your guide’s chosen fishing spot and enjoy the silence that envelops you when the engine stops. As your guide prepares the fishing equipment and cuts a hole in the ice, get a safety briefing and pointers on this ancient, native skill. Then, simply drop your baited line into the water and hope for a bite.

As you wait, chat to your guide, absorb the beautiful scenery, and hear about the fish you might catch. Then, if you’re lucky, feel a tug on your line from what might be a fish such as a rainbow trout or perch.

Later, your guide will light a campfire and fillet and fry up your catch for you to eat. Otherwise, feast on sausages cooked on the fire instead. Either way, there’s a hot drink to warm you up, too.

Afterward, ride your snowmobile back to the snowmobile center. Your tour ends here or with a drop-off back at Rovaniemi.

  • This was a great tour despite the fact that we didn't catch any fish that day. The views during the snowmobile ride were amazing and made the trip worth it by itself. It was interesting to learn ice fishing, and at one point we stopped to warm up by a fire and eat some sausages and drink the warm berry juice that is common in Lapland. It was too bad we had no fish to augment our meal, but that was our own fault...the fish outsmarted us that day. A few things for people considering this: 1) Don't feel intimidated by the travel means. The guides give good instructions on snowmobiling and its quite simple. If you still aren't comfortable, you can opt to ride as a passenger on the snowmobile instead of drive. I'd never done it before and it was easy and fun. 2) I brought a bunch of warm clothing for this trip...not necessary. The tour company provides thermal wear from head to toe, but know that the hand wear is mittens, so bring your own gloves if you want a back up set of handwear with fingers.
