Follow GuideGunnar north of his base camp at Ringvassøya island, north of Tromsø, where GuideGunnar will equip you with thermo suit and good boots for a little walk on snow... We will walk up to a beautiful lake surrounded by mountains in the midst of the Arctic wilderness. You will be given fishing gear, shown how to use it and how you clean your catch.
