The area around Reisastua is an ice fisherman’s paradise. It is close to the plateau where there are hundreds of good fishing lakes where large chars are waiting.
Some of the lakes are easily accessible as they are along the approved snowmobile trails. Other lakes are slightly away from the snowmobile trails and can be visited by dog sled or ski.
Our guides are well known in the local area and know where to find the best fishing spots. We can set up tents so that you can stay by the waters for several days or we can drive on shorter day trips. Several snowmobile trails start live at the pilot. To get the biggest chars, you should fish at the same water for a couple of days. There is normally the greatest chance of large char early in the morning. Arctic char often swims in shoals, so when it first bites the bait, there is a great opportunity for many fish in a short time.
This form of fishing is extra exciting because it is possible to lie by the hole on top of a reindeer skin to look down into the hole. This is so exciting because you can see the fish swimming below the hole. The fish do not always bite so it is fun to see larger shoals swimming past the hole. Ice fishing on the mountain is also a social and exotic experience. This is an activity that is suitable for the whole family. If it is a little windy, we have the opportunity to set up fishing tents on the lakes so this is a pleasant activity.
Even though it is an Arctic region, it is sometimes possible to sit in a T-shirt in the sun and fish. It is these days that are really worth experiencing.
After a successful day of fishing in the mountains, you can return to Reisastua and be served your own catch prepared by our chefs, or you make it yourself. Many people thought that Arctic char was one of the best fish they had ever tasted.
But before this culinary experience, it is important to enjoy a relaxing and wonderful time in Reisastua’s large outdoor jazuccie.
