On this trip the likelihood of getting to experience the strike of a fish and seeing it emerge from under the ice is very good.

This is a public tour with no minimum number of participants. Just look at the calendar for a free day and make a booking!

If your group size is at least four people and you want to order the ice fishing tour only for your group and for the day you wish, choose a private ice fishing safari as an option.

Nallikari Experience Center

Nallikari Experience Center

We will meet at the Nallikari Experience Center, after which we will change into our winter clothes. The center is located right in front of Nallikari beach, in the basement of the Nallikari Aalto hotel building.

From the Experience Center, we will begin a 5 – 15 minute walk on the frozen sea to the fishing spots, where our guide will set up a small heated pop-up tent if there is strong wind or frost. On location, everyone gets a chance to drill a hole in the ice by themselves, and our fishing guide will demonstrate how to attach the bait and how to lure the fish with it. The trip doesn’t require previous fishing experience.

We have one sonar fish finder at our disposal, which we use to assist in searching for fish, and from the finder, you can see how fish react to the lure in winter.

The Oulu sea area, located in the Gulf of Bothnia, is absolutely beautiful especially in winter offering spectacular views on both the city and the open sea. It is also a great ice fishing location and has some good spots for catching perch, roach or even whitefish.
