We will be received by the host and hostess of Ollila, and then we will head out to check the nets under the lake ice. The local lakes are rich with many species of fish. While we are working, the guide tells stories about the history of Sossonniemi fishing village, and about the importance of fishing industry in our daily lives. Over the years, the development of fishing equipment alone has been phenomenal!
We may find whitefish, perch, pike, burbot, or roach from the nets. After checking the nets we will carry on ice fishing and the guide will help us to get started. The catch may be perch or even a silvery whitefish. The programme is especially well-suited for children, the distance to the warmth of the Juomuskota fireplace is not long and it is easy to drop in to warm up cold toes or fingers. At Juomuskota garden there are also kicksleds and sledges for sliding down snowy slopes. The Ollila dogs are fond of visitors and their gentle bark invites the guests to come and pat their shiny coats.
After the fishing trip we will return to Juomuskota where we will have a tasty fish dinner prepared by our hostess Marjo. The day’s catch may be included in the meal!
