Day at a fishing village
Experience an exciting winter day fishing with a professional fisherman at his genuine fishing spots in Kuusamo.
Our basecamp is Juomuskota, the private fish restaurant at Ollila in Sossonniemi fishing village by Lake Muojärvi. Together with our host Tuomo Ollila, a fisherman in second generation, we will try different fishing methods and have a delicious meal cooked from northern freshwater fish.
We will arrive at Ollila at 9:30 in the morning (if necessary, transport will be arranged at separate charge). On arrival there is coffee/tea with fresh forest berry pie in Juomuskota.
After this quick snack, we will dress up in warm clothes for the snowmobile transfer and fishing. You will get warm overalls, winter boots with woollen socks, and warm gloves. Helmets and balaclavas are also included in the winter gear.
We will ride comfortably in a snowmobile sled (max 8 people per sled) to Lake Muojärvi. Our host has been there already the day before and set nets under the ice. We will check the nets and hopefully see the first catch of the day – it can be pike, burbot, or ide. When the nets have been checked and the fish measured, we will head out to the best ice fishing spots. During fishing we will take a break and make a fire to a sheltered cove on the shore. It feels great to have a picnic by the campfire and enjoy the beautiful snowy scenery.
After a while it is late afternoon, and it’s time to return to Juomuskota for the famous Fisherman’s Delicacy Buffet prepared from fresh Lake Muojärvi catch. After a great day on the lake ice, we set off back to Ruka/Kuusamo where the gentle warmth of the sauna is waiting.
