Our guest can enjoy ice-fishing right on our frozen lake in the winter time.
A session of ice-fishing could almost be counted as a sort of meditation. Whilst waiting patiently for something to happen your mind clears itself unexpectedly and effortlessly. Infinity and silence are the key factors here. The spirituality is further enhanced by the strangely comforting idea of the vibrant underwater-life deep below the seemingly still and icy surface. Catching fish is a bonus, not the purpose.
Anyone can do it
The basics of ice-fishing are very simple. All you need is a lake – or the sea – that is frozen. Even five centimeters of ice is enough to bare the weight of a human being. Once you’ve chosen your fishing spot, you need a core drill for making a hole in the ice and the fishing gear to catch the fish. That is all. Catching some fish is largely down to luck, although some experience can be needed for choosing the right spot: the direction of the wind and understanding how the fish behave around the year are central to this. text: @visitfinland .
