ICE-FISHING IN THE RUSSIAN WILDERNESS


First, we travel from Saariselkä to the Raja-Jooseppi border crossing point. After the border formalities, we are ready for adventure in the Russian wilderness. We take a break from snowmobiling to enjoy a packed lunch and continue our journey to a cabin by lake Lovnojärvi, where we spend the night. We have a sauna and enjoy an evening meal. It is about 40 kilometres from the border to the cabin.

The morning starts with breakfast, after which we rush off to do some ice fishing. The whole day is reserved for fishing. We enjoy lunch by a campfire and an evening meal in the cabin. The best angler of the day receives a reward as evening falls. After breakfast, we prepare to head home. Whilst snowmobiling, we stop and eat another picnic lunch. We cross the border and head back to Saariselkä.
