Seine fishing in winter
We arrive at Ollila by bus at about 10.30 and will be met by our host and hostess. After this the participants will be transferred by snowmobile sled (in groups of 8) to the lake ice, where a group of professional fishermen are waiting.
While they are working the fishermen tell us about their livelihood and seine fishing in winter conditions. The fishermen may have lit a fire to keep warm, and we can make hot juice over the fire and have a tasty fish snack with it. We will join in the pulling of the seine from under the ice, until the catch finally appears and it is lifted into containers. When the fishing is done, we will head to Sossonniemi fishing village harbour where we are shown how the fishing harbour operates. Those who are willing can take part in cleaning the catch with the fishermen. We will return from the harbour to Ollila and Juomuskota around 14.00 and have a delicious fish lunch or dinner. After the meal we will climb into the bus, nourished and happy after the day’s events.
Duration of the programme at Ollila approximately 5 hours.
Driving distance in snowmobile sled max 8 km altogether.
The programme is also available as a snowmobile safari.
