Enjoy a summer’s morning with a fishing rod in hand, floating slowly in a rowboat catching some big fish. Fishing and ice fishing are everyman’s rights, so no fishing license is needed.
However, there are some rapids and running waters along the Vantaa, Koira ja Kerava Rivers where this right has been limited. You can find the best fishing spots in the Hyvinkää fishing guide (PDF, in Finnish).
If the fishing is done with a spinning rod that has a reel, you have to pay the fisheries management fee, and on special fishing grounds you must have the owner’s permission. Read more information about fishing permits (www.eraluvat.fi).
You can also hunt in Hyvinkää.
Kartanon Riista organises hunts of ungulates and birds of the pheasant family for companies and individuals. Choose, for example, the traditional English pheasant hunt, the short partridge hunt which is suitable for beginners or the all-day hunt with the German Quail Dog.
