Autumn means great fishing holidays in Finnish Lakeland

Start of the autumn in Finnish Lakeland means start of a great three months long period (September, October and November) for fishing pike, zander, perch and later on; trout and salmon. When the water temperatures drop the big fish come to the more shallow parts and shorelines of the lakes. This means for instance that fishing by spinning and flyfishing for pike is very successful. Our fishing guide Janne knows the lakes around here as his own pockets, so if you want to get right away to the best places and get his professional hints and tips, then a guided fishing trip is to recommend.

Outdoor activities for Finnish autumn

September and October are excellent months for outdoor activities  in the Finnish Lakeland. The air is fresh and warm, and it's not too hot to move on the lakes and in the forest. It's an Everyman's right to pick mushrooms and berries in the Finnish forest.

There are lots of chantarelles in the forests.

The lingonberries are getting more red every day and are soon ready to be picked!
A fishing kayak is excellent especially when you want to fish in the shallow waters.
