Lake Kitka - also known as Lake Kitkajärvi - is the largest unregulated lake in Finland. Long sandy beaches and beautiful heaps of rocks along the water, deep trenches and pebble-bottomed shallow waters; Lake Kitka has it all. Ideal for swimming or cooling off as part of the Finnish sauna ritual and for water sports in the summer. During the winter you can make beautiful sleigh rides with huskies across the ice through Finland. But regardless of the season: Lake Kitka is a magnet for fishermen in Finland!
Fishing is more than a sport for the Finns; it's a way of life. Blue sky, beautiful nature and nothing but the peace and space of Finland around you. Becoming one with the nature. The Finnish way to clear your mind completely. Through an opening in the ice, in which you slowly move the rod up and down, in a boat on the water or with your feet in the sand; depending on the season, you can catch fish in various ways in Lake Kitka. And if you do not catch any fish, that is not a problem for the Finns: it is mainly about the experience of harmony with nature in Finland.
