Fishing and hunting

Wilderness of Northern Lapland calls for fishing and hunting

Many famous and pristine fishing rivers flow through the vast wilderness areas of Inari-Saariselkä area – such as rivers Ivalojoki, Näätämöjoki, Juutua and Luottojoki. The River Teno has been regarded as one of the best salmon rivers in Europe. Lake Inarijärvi is a great fishing destination especially for trolling enthusiasts and anglers. Lake Inari’s whitefish and grayling are well-known delicacies. In northern Lapland, fishing licences are sold online and at the Metsähallitus Customer Service Points in Saariselkä, Ivalo and Inari.

On a guided fishing trip, you don’t have to worry about licences, best fishing spots or your fishing knowhow – you don’t even need any previous experience. In the summertime, you can fish all night long and enjoy the midnight sun while you are at it, and in the wintertime, you’ll get to try something very Finnish – ice fishing. Either way, you will experience the thrill of catching your own food which for sure is wild, organic and pure. Another authentic wilderness experience is a hunting trip with a local professional hunting guide. Take your fishing and hunting to a whole new level in the legendary wilderness of northern Lapland.
