Fishing Tour on River Kemijoki in Rovaniemi in Lapland

Fishing Tour on River Kemijoki in Rovaniemi in Lapland

Enjoy light Arctic nights and August evenings by trolling on the longest river of Finland. Stay in an island hotel in the middle of the fishing waters only 10 minutes from the Rovaniemi airport in Lapland.

Rovaniemi  is the regional capitol of Lapland. It is located at the Arctic circle. It is also known as the home town of Santa Claus. You can meet Santa throughout the year in his post office at the Arctic Circle. We recommend to start your visit from the Arkikum museum, which gives you facts first abut the Arctic.

Vartiosaari has existed in maps by the name "Guard Island" since 1712. Pharmacist Castren owned the island in 1880 and named it Ainola. it then private summer residence. The Defence Forces of Finland owned the island from 1939 to 1944 and used it for military operations. The guerilla group had even their headquarters on the island. In 1973 the island became a private summer residence again. From 1983 Vartiosaari has welcomed guests. The island takes you by surprise! The small island is literally full of  buildings in different styles. 

Located in the middle of river Kemijoki in Rovaniemi this island hotel is a natural location for a fishing holiday. Kemijoki is the longest river (=550km) in Finland running throught the towns of Kemijärvi and Rovaniemi before reaching the Gulf of Bothnia in Kemi. As Kemijoki has several power plants it is not as good for salmon fishing asthe border river Tornionjoki.

Fishing on river Kemijoki:

The main catch on this river is pike. Other specias found: perch, greyling (not allowed to catch 1.4.-31.5.) and rainbow trout. You can fish by trolling, spinning and fly-fishing since there are many very different fishing spots found. On the arrival night you will start from the near waters but on the following two days the tours are designed according to your wishes. 

Sauna is heated every night. There is a Lappish hut restaurant with great food. On one of the nights the chef will prepare dinner together with you. In late August and September, when the nights are getting dark again this island hotel offers a great spot for northern lights observation as well. 

Vartiosaari is located only 10 min drive from the Rovaniemi city center as well as the airport.
