Showshoe and Ice Fishing Tour
In the deep snow, the best way to take a Hiking tour is with traditional snowshoes. Feel like an intrepid explorer as you trek into the wilderness. Try ice fishing and making a fire out in nature with what you find for a real adventure.
Join us for arctic nature hiking
After we pick you up from your hotel or pickup point within Kiruna local town area, you will be taken back to our homebase in Kalixfors. There, you can meet our dogs but then be kitted out in warm clothes and snowshoes.
Join our guides as we explore arctic nature
We will show you how we catch fish under the ice
Learn how to fish on ice
Once we are approprately dressed for the cold weather, We then hike out to the lake, and start ice fishing by drilling through the thick ice with a special ice drill and set our fishing poles with bait in the river beneath. When it is this cold, you don’t want to wait around for the fish to bite.
Look for wildlife
Instead of waiting around and freezing, we hike out into the nature for about an hour. We might see wildlife around, depending on the season, we might see moose, reindeer, arctic hare and more. Then we find wood to make a fire to have some warm drinks, usually traditional lingonberry juice and toast marshmallows on the fire that we will make in the snow.
Feel the quiet calm of the Swedish Arctic
Experience what it's like to survive in the arctic!
Includes hot lunch & Fika
Once we are warm and rested, we will hike back to the ice fishing spot to see if we have caught anything. Importantly, we release the fish back into the water to protect the fish population in winter. After that, we hike back to home base, you can stop in our laavu for soup, sandwiches and Swedish Fika. Furthermore you can hang out with our dogs for a bit if you like. After that your adventure is then complete with us, and we will take you back to your pickup point with great memories of your time at Kiruna Husky!
