Enjoy a fun day at Lake Rahajärvi, just ten minutes north of Ivalo village, where you'll learn the basics of traditional winter fishing and indulge in a delicious meal!

Our expert guides will teach you authentic Lappish ice fishing techniques, which include:

  • Ice drilling (“kairaaminen”)
  • Traditional ice fishing (“pilkkiminen”)
  • Under-Ice net fishing (“juomustus”)
  • Fish preparation demonstration
  • Making delicious fish soup

After reeling in our catch, we'll gather around a crackling fire in a traditional Lappish Kota and prepare the freshest fish you've ever tasted. You'll learn traditional fish cooking methods, with all the necessary equipment provided by Xwander.

This experience is perfect for friends, couples and families. Kids can enjoy activities like tobogganing and kick sledding, ensuring everyone has a memorable experience.

Our cold, clear waters make the fish incredibly fresh. Join us on this incredible winter experience!
