Ice fishing, or as we say pilkki, is indeed a Finnish hobby that almost all locals do! We drive by car to the shore of very nice lake with plenty of fish. We change car for snowshoes and hike to the beautiful frozen lake where ice fishing and coffee break take place. After drilling a hole in to the lake and setting up your pilkki you may catch perches, whitefishes, roaches, pikes or even graylings.
Wednesdays, Saturdays at 10.00
