Rapids Fishing

The Holiday Resort is situated in the confines of the Karvio rapids and Lake Kermajärvi, a favoured fishing area. The upkeep of the rapids is overseen by the Finnish Forest and Park Service, who are responsible for the upkeep of the area and for maintaining fish stocks. Fishing permits for the rapids area are available for purchase at the Resort. Fishing can be done either independently or with the help of a guide. We also offer boats for hire.
