A short drive takes us from the airport to our wonderful Fly Arctic Lodge set on Kitkajarvi lake where a delicious dinner awaits us, with a trip briefing afterwards. The following day there is fishing on the Oulankajoki river and for those not fishing, a hike in the green forests of Konkaan Keino. Barbecue at the lodge tonight.
The Kuusinkijoki River to the east is our fishing destination today, with a barbecue along the river with our catch for lunch! Those not fishing will have a loop hike with great views on the Riisitunturi high plain, and lunch in a Victorian home. We’ll fish the Kitkajoki River, low, and high, on the following two days. For those not fishing there will be a hike along the river to an antique water mill and on to our fisher people one day, and an easy morning walk in Valtavaaran, and an afternoon cooking lesson. Some dinners in the lodge, others in nearby towns.
We’ll all head to the National Park of Hossa this morning, where fishing will be on the large Hossanjoki River, and those not casting will take kayaks to a hike leading to prehistoric wall paintings! Fishing on the Oulankajoki River the following day, with hikers making a loop to the group lunch. Saunas, or, more hiking, in the afternoon.
