Ice fishing is one of the village’s favourite winter activities. It is exciting and at the same time relaxing to lie on a reindeer skin on the ice in the blue hour, while you look down into the fishing hole and wait to spot the big fish. The trip starts from the Thon hotel where guests are given winter clothes. We drive 2 people per snowmobile and the trip goes to one of the many good ice fishing lakes we have in Kautokeino. In the lavvu, we warm ourselves around the fire while guests are served coffee and cake. It is also possible to pre-order Sami food.
Good to know:
The average temperature in winter is around -20 degrees. In Kautokeino, you can still experience lower temperatures against -45 degrees. Recommended clothing is therefore warm outerwear, woollen underwear, woollen socks, mittens, scarf, hat and good winter shoes.
