Karelian Fishing on Snowmobiles
Winter fishing with snowmobile rides is a great choice for getting a real winter holiday in Karelia with its snowy expanses, sparkling sun and fresh frosty air. The feeling of unique excitement and cheerfulness from fishing will harmoniously complement the contemplation of beautiful winter landscapes. And after the program, you will be able to proudly prepare a successful catch for your friends and relatives.

Once you arrive, you will select equipment and get the necessary instructions on how to ride a snowmobile. After you try out snowmobiles and get used to the technique a little, you will leave along the planned route. You will commence a real safari on the vast frozen lake Sundozero. Feeling confident, you will gradually go faster, accelerating to a comfortable speed, and rush along the ice-covered lake. Then, you will choose a place for fishing, take out the gear, moving on to the most interesting activity, ice fishing. You will drill a hole with an ice drill, settling down with a fishing rod in your hands. Once fish bites, you will pull the long-awaited first catch onto the ice and rejoice like a child, filled with thrill and excitement. After that, a winter barbecue will be arranged for you with comfortable chairs, a fire burning on ice, herbal tea with smoke and Karelian pies. With anticipation, you will wait for a delicious fish soup to be made. Meanwhile, you will get involved in a master class on cooking smoked trout.
