The best ice fishing for Arctic char in the province of Lappland can be experienced from early June up until Midsummer, when the weather is stable with daytime temperatures of several degrees above freezing. The mountain lakes are often crystal clear with light lakebeds.
“Kikmete” (bait watching) is a very popular form of char fishing. In some lakes, visibility can be as deep as 10 metres, and you’re looking down into an aquarium of char as they swim by in shoals.
Stay in a tent goahti (hut) with its own heating source. Cabins are available in some mountain areas.
