Winter fishing in Kukkola

Visiting Kukkolarapids where you meet the fisherman, pick up burbot fishnets and try out your luck in ice-fishing

Have you ever wondered how the locals make the most of the snowy, cold winter days? One of the favorite pass-time is ice-fishing and one of the local traditions is to catch fish from underneath the ice with nets or traps. How about trying your luck in ice-fishing? Our guide will teach you how to drill a hole in the ice and prepare the ice-fishing rod and baits. Further, you can participate in the lifting of burbot traps from underneath the ice and hear about this marvelous fish, which is a true seasonal delicacy.
Before leaving the fishing grounds we enjoy a delicious snack by a campfire.
