”Juomustus” is an ancient form of winter fishing, which has been used for centuries in Lapland. Before heading for the fishing nets, you are told how the nets can be inserted under the ice and what tools are required. After that we go to the fishing nets excited to see the possible amount of catch. We check the nets together and the prey instinct of even first-time visitors is bound to awake when the nets cork-line vibrates in their hands and soon the silvery whitefish glints in the ice hole. Usually beautiful whitefish are caught in the lake. After the exiting fishing experience it’s time to cook and taste the fresh fish in the kota. You can enjoy your meal accompanied with exciting stories by the master story-teller by a warm campfire.
