The Ahvenlampi pond (approx. 5 hectares in size) is situated by the mighty Ukko-Luosto fell, right next to the center of fell resort Luosto. The pond is ideal for casting and ice fishing and it is a great angling destination for the whole family. Around the pond, there is a 2 km accessible trail which is also maintained during the winter months. You can enjoy your freshly caught fish or a nice picnic by open fire at the lean-to-shelter by the pond.
