About
This tour allows you to experience Lapland nature at its best with two local activities combined together : snowshoeing through the forests and ice-fishing on an immense frozen lake.  After being picked up from your accommodation and given proper winter clothing/boots (it can be as cold as -30C in Lapland!), your guide will drive you around 20km away from Rovaniemi to find the perfect peaceful place to start your trip. Before heading into the forests, you will be given some instructions how to use the snowshoes and walk on snow. As you snowshoe through the quiet snowy landscapes, you will already feel the harmony of Lapland nature that surrounds you. Soon you will end up in an immense open area made of ice and snow. It is time to find a promising spot on the lake and try to catch your lunch! Your guide will help you drill your own hole in the ice, and will teach you the basic techniques how to ice-fish. Then, it is just a matter of time and patience before you can feel the first bites ! This is just the perfect moment to appreciate the silence that reigns over the lake. While you will be fishing, your guide will chop wood and prepare a fire on the shores for you. Some typical Finnish snacks and hot drinks will be waiting for you around the fire and will offer a convivial opportunity to your guide to answer all your questions about life in the Arctic and Lapland in general. If you manage to catch a fish (of a decent size), your guide will happily prepare it, cook it straight over the fire and add it to the menu of the day! If the fish are undersized, we will quickly return them to the ice without unnecessarily harming them.  After this ice-fishing experience, it will be time to put back on the snowshoes and head back to Rovaniemi! In all our excursions, our groups are limited to 8 travelers maximum. It it very important for us to provide you with the best experience as possible, and avoid mass tourism. This way, your guide will know you better and will be able to address all your needs and answer your questions. Also, in relation to ice-fishing, keeping our groups small allows our guests to fully experience the peaceful silence of Lapland nature. As we usually say : the smaller the group, the bigger the experience !

Fantastic trip. Loved the snow shoeing, just wished we had done more. Ice fishing was fun. Didn’t catch any, but didn’t expect to. Snacks and fire in a teepee. Great Finland experience.

Very funny to walk with the snowshoes. It was very even if you are not sporty.
Unfortunately no fish.

This is definitely what you are looking for if you want a unique winter experience. Wild About Lapland is focused on small groups which will make your experience more memorable. Our guide, Božo, was also amazing. He made sure that we have engaged with each other while sitting next to the fire, grilling sausages, having a hot cup of drink and of course, cookies. Definitely one for the books!

I went to snow shoeing and ice-fishing to get to know something about the culture of Lapland. We were a small group of 5 persons on 22nd of January, so it was a nice and individual adventure. First we went through a forest to a frozen lake with our snowshoes. Over there we did our holes into the lake ourselves and we had a great view when the sun got up. We got all materials we needed. Our guide (sorry, I forgot her I was very nice and carefully. All went well and I liked it very much although I didn't catch a fish 😂. After fishing we got a little Barbecue with bread and sausages and a warm drink to warm up before we went the way back to our car with our snowshoes. So everything was like I thought before and my guide brought me back to the hotel although I didn't "book" a pick-up and bring back service. Thanks a lot for this experience and the lovely day!

My husband and I booked an ice fishing trip and we were guided by Bozo! We will like to compliment Bozo on his professionalism and humor during our trip! He patiently explained to us about the tips of ice fishing during our drive there and whilst we were there, he taught us how to drill a hole in the ice and how to best catch a fish during the winter.

We had a bbq after the ice fishing where he shared his experiences with us.

We had an enjoyable time with Bozo and will definitely book a trip with him again the next time we are back to Finland!

Theo (the owner and my guide) really understands what outdoor lovers seek from Lapland. He provides transportation, logistics and great knowledge, but knows that you want to experience the serenity and beauty of the lappish wilderness in authenticity: in small groups, without distractions, and just enough comfort without making the experience too manufactured. I regret not having booked more tours with him, as he is an honest broker (for example, will cancel a northern lights tour if the weather is too poor for viewing when others may not and still collect a fee). Additionally, they limit the group size, so you always get a personal experience. Couldn't recommend this company more.

Theo is a great tour guide, super friendly and knowledgeable, and also very patient when teaching us the essential skills for snowshoeing and ice fishing. He came to our airbnb to pick us up and he was bang on time! We went as a group of three, with one other guy, we really enjoyed going as a small group because this way everyone is being taken good care of. Unfortunately we didn’t catch any fish, but the spectacular views of the scenary were worth the walk!!! Theo was very happy to help us take lots of photos too.☺️
