Ice fishing tours

On our regular family-friendly ice fishing day trip, you will be fishing on an easily accessible lake in Reisa Valley, located about 5 kilometers from our lodge. Our experienced guide will teach you all the tricks of this traditional and very popular local activity.

During the ice fishing, we will serve you local snacks and hot beverages, and you will be able to warm yourself up sitting on the reindeer skins by the fire with a beautiful view over the surrounding wild mountains.

All the fishing gear and the transport from our lodge are included.

Wilderness ice fishing in the Finnmarksvidda mountain plateau

Our lodge is literally surrounded by the vast wilderness of the Finnmarksvidda mountain plateau, where there are hundreds of good fishing waters with big chars and trouts.

Some of the waters are easily accessible as they are along the approved snowmobile trails, which start close to the lodge. Other waters are slightly away from the snowmobile trails and can be visited by dog sleds or skis.

Our guides have a high level of knowledge about the local area and know where to find the best fishing spots. We usually drive our guests into the mountains using snowmobiles. Just the approach to the lake through the breathtaking wilderness is a pure arctic adventure on its own. We can offer you shorter day trips, but we can also set up our durable tents so that you can stay by the water even for several days. To get the biggest char, you should usually fish in the same water for a few days. Try to imagine spending them in the middle of the untouched last European wilderness with northern lights dancing above your cozy tent in the night.

This form of fishing is extra exciting because it is possible to lie at the hole on a reindeer’s skin and look down into the hole. This is so exciting because you can see the fish swimming below the hole. The fish don’t always bite, so it’s fun to see larger shoals swim past the hole. Ice fishing in the mountains is also a social and exotic experience.

True adventure lovers can combine this activity with unforgettable wilderness skiing trips.

Even though it is an arctic region, during the spring months, it is sometimes possible to sit in a T-shirt in the sun and fish. It is these days that are so worth experiencing. This is an activity suitable for the whole family.


After a successful time of fishing in the mountains, you can return to Reisastua and be served your own catch, which has been prepared by our chefs, or you can prepare it yourself. Many thought that Arctic char was some of the best fish they had tasted.
