Catch & Relax – Ice Fishing

Swedish winters can be magical with their tranquility and colorful scenery. Why not take advantage of a long winter by trying out one of its most fun activities – ice fishing! Operating out of Vaxholm, Catch & Relax hopes this can be the perfect break for your conference participants, a fun team event, or just a delightful day outside the house with family and friends.

From January to mid-April, they fish for Pike, Perch, or Rainbow Trout, and the chances of getting a big fish are often better on the ice than during other seasons. They’re promoting sustainable and environmentally-friendly fishing. Up to 10 people can go on their trips, which include top-notch gear in line with their eco-friendly principles. They’ll also teach you how to take the hook out and release the fish.

Catch & Relax uses utility sleds that are well equipped with everything you might need during the day. The activities only take place on completely safe ice, and every participant gets a pair of ice claws. The details of ice fishing activities can vary, depending on the weather, ice thickness, and your desires. Starting time and duration are flexible depending on the customers’ wishes.

All fishing locations are in a 40 km radius from Vaxholm, and Catch & Relax will contact you before the trip to arrange the meeting point from which you’ll go to the fishing spot on foot. Pickups from a hotel can be arranged before the trip as well.

They recommend warm and comfortable clothes. Start with thermal underwear and thick socks, and then add layers. A good thing to have is an outer layer that is wind and waterproof. Last but not least, waterproof and warm boots. A backpack with some extra clothes, gloves, and socks is always a good idea. Catch & Relax provides floatation suits and something to sit on.

Ice fishing can also be combined with other activities – you’ll get to have an outdoor barbecue on the ice. Cold and warm drinks (non-alcoholic) are always included, as well as Swedish baked treats.
