Hunting and fishing
There are good fishing and hunting in the southern part of the Finnforest. There are plenty of perch and pike. The local hunting and fishing association reports 17 nice lakes, ponds, and rivers to enjoy fishing. Perch exists in large. So does pike. There are also trout; especially in the forest of Varandskogen. These are small pounds. Usually one needs to walk a bit to reach the ponds where it is possible to fish trout.
We use spinning bait to catch the pike and earthworm on the perch. To fish pike we either use worms or hackle. It is possible to conduct fishing from land or from boat or canoe.
There are moose hunting, deer hunting, and hunting on especially hare, black grouse and capercailzie (woodgrouse). Moose and deer hunting are reserved for landowners in Norway, but hunting on birds and hare are free for all people as long as you buy a licence.We provide licence for a larger hunting area; approx. 30.000 da. There are certain rules for doing hunting. You will find prices for the hunt as it was presented last year.
We can provide housing close to the hunting terrain and the fishing waters. We may also serve you the meals. We have water closets, showers, and souna. We can provide transportation according to your need.
