River Könkämäeno is on the wish list of many seasoned fishermen. The trip is equally fun for those who are beginners and might experience their first ever catch of fish.
During this rubber boat excursion you’ll admire the scenery of two countries: Finland on the left shore, Sweden on the right shore. The trip starts in Saarikoski, which is located 30 km south of Kilpisjärvi. The rafting route is ca. 10 km long, zigzagging between Finland and Sweden, passing several easy and a few a bit more difficult rapids en route. You’ll be comfortably seated in a rubber raft, paddling together with your licenced skipper guide. Grayling is the main catch you can expect if you participate in the fishing, which is by no means mandatory, as this trip is suitable for anyone with a love for the nature. A break will be held on the shore, with a picnic by open fire. If you plan to fish, you should bring your own equipment and obtain a fishing permit, which is not included in the cost.
