Walking on ice
It is always a pleasure to enjoy a moment outside on a sunny winter day, but if you want to do it in an original way, why don’t you take a walk on the frozen river of Rovaniemi? You will of course have to be careful and be sure that the ice is thick enough to support heavy weights, but once you see every local enjoying a walk on some parts of the river, do not hesitate and join them! If it seems up your street, what we recommend is to ask the tourism office the places to avoid and the most secure places, they will surely know how to advise you.
Another option is to surround yourself with a professional local guide that will help you choose an activity on ice that suits you. You could choose the simplicity of a walk, go cross country skiing or snowshoeing, enjoy the speed of a snowmobile and last but not least, go ice fishing!
A peaceful moment on the river
When in Finland, you will notice that Finnish people love any activity that will make them feel relaxed. They take the time to breath and enjoy the simple things in life. Ice fishing is one of those things. It is an activity that will allow you to admire the nature that surrounds you and to take some time for yourself. Why don’t you give a try to one of the most Finnish activity you could find?
The love story between Finns and Ice fishing goes back a long time. It is a rich and simple experience that gives a great opportunity to slow down, reflect on your thoughts and enjoy a quiet moment. Local people are used to saying that catching a fish isn’t the purpose, it is a bonus. Of course, coming back from an ice fishing adventure with beautiful fresh fish is amazing, but even if nothing bites, the stories you will share will be great to tell.
