Every man is a fisherman – this is a common belief among the Finnish people. If you want to try something truly traditional, try winter fishing either yourself or with an experienced guide. Rich with fish lakes and rivers are a real paradise for fishermen, so after a day fishing you will not come empty-handed. The best time of the year for winter fishing is between February and March when the fish comes closer to the surface and the ice is no longer so thick.

Some of the best places for winter fishing are located near the Holiday Centre Revontuli, Himos Holiday Center and the Spa Hotel Peurunka.
