Traditional Finnish Sauna and Hot Tub with Salmon Ice Fishing

Have you been wondering how Finns spend their free time in the winter? Ice fishing and sauna are favorite free-time activities of many Finns and the way they spend their weekends, for example.

We will give you an introduction to ice fishing and explain to you how to catch a fish, starting with drilling a hole in the ice. We have salmon in our private lake. Catching one is not guaranteed, but it is usually easy.

A hot sauna and hot tub will be ready for you, once you are done ice fishing. When taking a sauna, you can also jump to snow, to have an even more authentic experience.

We will make a fire for you in our lake laavu, grill sausages, or prepare the salmon if you catch one.
