A cottage by the waters is every Finn's dream come true. You can also enjoy this idyll by hiring your own fishing cottage. Fish are included in the rental charges too, if you can catch any.

Cottages along the waters

There is a wide variety of accommodation sites available for you to use as a base for your fishing holiday. Alternatives include rental cottages, farm accommodation, hotels and camp sites. On the most remote fishing sites out in the wilderness, people camp in tents.

There are cosy cottages along the waters, where it's easy for you to head out on your fishing trip in the morning. The choices vary from ascetic and simple basic cottages to five-star villas equipped with every modern convenience.

Some cottage sites specialise in catering for anglers and these have been awarded Fishing Cottages status. These sites provide fish-processing and cold storage facilities, maps and charts as well as information about fishing and licences in their respective local areas.

Cottages come with a rowing boat and some sites also offer motor boats for hire. It's a good idea to ask staff at accommodation sites about local fishing guide services. Using guide services is the easiest way to get to grips with fishing methods suitable for local waters right from the start of your holiday.

Cottages are fully booked during the summer season, so it's advisable to make your reservation well in advance. Accommodation is easier to find in the spring, autumn and winter, when you'll often get a lower rate as well.
