Visit Finland in winter, and you’ll find many Finns sitting still on a flat, ice-covered piece of land, meditating, contemplating and displaying some of the stoicism Scandinavia is famous for. But then, there’s a shout of excitement and you see one or a few of them break free from their trance and excitedly pull a fish out of the ground. Look closely, and you’ll find that these people are Winter Fishing atop a frozen lake, a time-honoured, centuries old tradition and one of the most exciting things to do in Finland.

During your stay at Holiday Club resorts in Finland, you too can go Winter Fishing for your dinner or simply for sport. The resort will provide you with all the gear you need to make a hole in the ice and drop a line into it. You can also enlist the services of an experienced guide to show you the ropes or simply rent the gear, head to a nearby lake and ask some fishermen for help. They'll be more than happy to guide you.

Two factors make Finland the best place in the world for Winter Fishing. One is the abundance of lakes and the other is Finnish ‘Everyman’s Rights’ which give Finns and foreigners rights to enjoy Finland’s natural beauty and hike, hunt and fish anywhere they please as long as they aren’t a nuisance and abide by the rules. Winter fishing isn’t only about fishing. It’s also about enjoying nature’s beauty, it’s peace and silence. If you go winter fishing on a cloudless night with a full moon the experience is ethereal. Similarly, when you go fishing at the crack of dawn, you get to witness a beautiful panoramic sunrise that brightens your whole day. Catching a fat pike, trout or salmon, is just a bonus.

With Club Mahindra, you can witness many such magnificent experiences across 100+ resorts in India and abroad! To know more about Winter Fishing at Holiday Club resorts,  Finland, read the Club Mahindra member reviews.
