Ice floating was so much fun. Arto was really helpful and experienced and showed us what to do. It was such an unusual experience, and would definitely recommend. Arto also showed us around Varkaus afterwards, which was great, and he pointed out a lovely cafe we wouldn't have otherwise found.

For our group of 11 guys Arto gave us an introduction on ice fishing, which was well-organized and really rewarding. Thanks to his flexibility he organized a ice floating tour for us just the day afterward - We just had the maximum of fun!
