Learn the secrets of winter fishing and how to use a traditional wire fish trap to catch your very own burbot or two with our knowledgeable resident fisherman and chef Ilkka. During the c. 1 hr snowshoe walk on ice you will be able to admire the stunning winter scenery of Lake Saimaa and learn about the fishing trade in the region. You will get to witness how fresh and local the fish we eat and serve is and how easy it can be to catch it.
After returning from our fishing adventure, we will enjoy a burbot soup meal in our charming log cabin. Fish is caught by us of course and the rest of the ingredients come from local producers or from our own garden. In addition we use the best seasonal ingredients from the surrounding nature, pick mushrooms, berries and herbs from the local forests, eat them fresh on the season and preserve the rest for the winter. Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do, and food made from local and homegrown ingredients is our passion.
Duration of the experience is c. 3 hrs and optimal size of the group 4 -12 people. Minimum billing 4 persons. Experience is available depending on the weather and ice conditions and can be done in February or March when it’s burbot spawning season.
