Rafting and Fishing on River Könkämäeno

Rafting and Fishing on River Könkämäeno

Rafting and Fishing on Könkämäeno, between Finland and Sweden The River Könkämäeno, which starts in Lake Kilpisjärvi and forms the border between Finland & Sweden, is on the wish list of many seasoned fishermen. This 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. You’ll experience the thrill of the rapids, most of them rather gentle and therefore suitable for even first-timers.

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 licence, which is not included in the cost.

Duration: 4 hours Cost: € 220 / raft (1 – 4 persons) + € 15 / person

Avid fishermen might want to make this a full-day trip in which case the rafting distance will be doubled.

Duration: 8 hours Cost: € 340 / raft (1 – 4 persons) + € 15 / person

Price includes: guided fishing and rafting trip, picnic by open campfire, floating device and rain clothing. Please note that the car transfer from / to Kilpisjärvi is not included in the price. Please bring your own fishing equipment and obtain a valid fishing licence.
