Why is Lapland a special place to fish?

The magical midnight sun

In norhtern Finland, sun never sets from the end of May until end of July. In the midnight, sun reaches its lowest point just above the horizon, creating a midnight moment with magical lighting. The “white summer nights” awaken inexplicable feelings of peace, that can only be understood through first hand experience. This is when the fishing memories you will remember for a lifetime are born. 

World class fish populations

With sparse human populations and negligible fishing pressure on pike, perch and zander, these fish populations are doing extremely well. In fact, there might actually be more lakes and rivers to fish these species than there are fishermen. Lots of lakes exist where you can be the only person to fish during the entire year. Over 10kg/110cm pikes are very common, and so are +1kg/40cm perches. To catch them you need to be at the right place at the right time – we will help you out with that.

Unique Finnish culture

In Lapland the Finnish culture lives together with the culture of the indigenous Sami people. Enjoy the traditional Finnish sauna after a long fishing day, lodge in a picturesque log cabin, and eat traditional Lapland foods, such as sautéed reindeer.

Thousands of lakes & northern nature

With sparse population and innumerable waters to fish, Lapland is teeming with fishing opportunities. There are more good waters than a fisherman can visit in a lifetime.
Wilderness areas in Lapland are vast, with rolling fells in the horizons and forests teeming with reindeers and other northern animals.
