Korpikeidas

Reviewed By Alextitkov - St. Petersburg, Russia

We have been coming to Korpikeidas for more than ten years. I believe they make the best smoked and salted trout in Finland. There is also very good frozen caviar without conservats. You can catch a trout and then they will smoke or salt it as you wish. You can eat it in the open air or inside, there are tables and small houses around the area. There is also a small zoo nearby that is a great fun for children.
