Ice Fishing in Tromsø
Keen to try a unique Arctic winter activity that few get to experience? Join in on a scenic trip from Tromsø through a mountain fjord landscape to the wilderness centre Camp Tamok where you can experience the thrills of ice fishing in the Arctic wilderness.
Upon arrival at Camp Tamok, you will be provided with warm winter clothing and fishing gear before we head off to find the perfect winter fishing spot.
Fishing through a hole in a pristine, frozen lake is a relaxing and enjoyable nature-based experience. There are many secluded and picturesque fishing lakes near the wilderness camp.
The guide will select the best spot based on the conditions and take you on a scenic drive there by minibus. Depending on the snow conditions, we may need to wear snowshoes to walk out onto the frozen lake.
Drilling a hole through the thick ice is part of this authentic Arctic experience. We will spend about 1 hr 30 min ice fishing and will prepare any fish you catch on the spot or in warmer surroundings back at Camp Tamok. All going well, you will catch a trout or Arctic char that you can grill on a campfire as an appetizer!
After trying your fishing luck, we will serve you a hot meal in a traditional North Norwegian setting around the open fire in a reindeer herder’s tent. You can relax, warm up and share fishing stories before heading back to Tromsø.
