Savukoski region offers excellent wilderness fishing destinations. Among them are the rivers Kemijoki, Värriöjoki, Kairijoki, Luirojoki and Nuorttijoki and their many tributaries.
The catch includes grayling, trout and pike. These rivers are also suitable for paddling trips. For fishermen’s convenience rest stops with Lapp tents, lean-to’s, fire pits and sanitation facilities have been built along the riverbanks.
Fishing licenses can be obtained from local tourist businesses, at Neste service station and in Korvatunturi Visitor Centre where you can also find the municipal tourist information service. Local tourist businesses offer fishing safaris and other related services.
Conserve nature – adopt a fish! A fish you want to “adopt” will be furnished with identification and released in the rapids of your choice in the Angler’s Savukoski project. You can watch the progress of your adopted fish in our website’s virtual rapids www.savukosket.fi/rapids.
