     Tourism, fishing and canoeing guide


The Kiiminkijoki River area is well suited for casting and especially fly-fishing from the banks of the river with a lightweight rod and reel. The width of the river varies between 15–90 meters and is suitably deep for wading. The water is light brown in color due to its humus content. The fish feed on a rich variety of insects.
