The permit area of Vikaköngäs is situated along the E 75 highway, 25 km north of Rovaniemi. The permit area consists of approximately 3 kilometres of the Raudanjoki River downstream from Lake Vikajärvi. Vikaköngäs is a part of the Arctic Circle Hiking Area, which offers comprehensive services, including hiking trails and campfire sites. A trail connects Vikaköngäs to Vaattunkiköngäs in the south.
A white-water kayaking course has been built 200 metres upstream of the suspension bridge. This course entails steel pillars on either side of the rapids and steel wires connecting the pillars together. When the course is set up, it makes fishing in the area more difficult.
All persons under 18 years of age receive a 50% discount on the permits and persons under 15 years of age are allowed to share the same fishing quota, with the permission of their parent or legal guardian. The family permit costs twice as much and its fishing quota is twice as large.
