The Rantajärvi lake is a natural habitat for pike, perch and trout and has a 7,9 kilometer shoreline with a partly sandy bottom. You can rent a rowing boat with life vests to get further out on the lake.

The lake Naarajärvi is located 6 kilometers from the village Rantajärvi. Here you can catch trout, pike and perch year-round. The shore around the lake is 2,3 kilometer and you have both shallow waters and a water depth up to 25 meters – a perfect habitat for the fish.
