FISHING

Try fishing in the Arctic region

Summer or winter – we want you to experience the fishing culture of the Arctic.
In the summer we fish in the Fjord, while in the winter, we go ice fishing.

ICE FISHING

Available from January 1st to April 30th

Let’s have a truly wonderful winter experience! A really popular activity here in the north is to go ice fishing. Back in the days it was a way to ensure survival in remote areas with little food sources during the hard winter time. But nowadays it is meant to be done for leaned-back outdoor recreation, social get-together and fun.

Season: 01.01 – 30.04
Capacity: 2-30
Duration: 4.5 hours
Price: NOK 1400/700 per adult/child (12 years and under)
NOK 9800 per private exclusive tour (max 8)
Departure: 10:00 or as agreed
Booking before 4pm one day prior

Dressed in properly warm clothing we bring with us ice drill, jigging equipment (special, sensitive ice fishing rod), hot beverages and snacks. We head for the frozen lakes with direct road connection where we try to make a good catch and prepare it on the fire. No fish? Then we will make something else instead.

If you want, you can help us to start the campfire, drill holes in the ice, and prepare the fishing gear to be involved in a whole winter outdoor experience. Otherwise, the beautiful winter surrounding is inviting you to wander around and relax on reindeer skins until your guide will make you familiar with the fishing gear and jigging technique to increase the chances of success.

Pæskatun provides all the equipment needed for both fishing and to keep you warm from inside and outside. Pictures of our winter adventure will be taken and sent to a given e-mail address.
