GuideGunnar recommends

Head lamp. White light when you walk out in the terrain, red light when you work with your camera.
Mitten gloves! Please wear mitten gloves (rather than finger gloves) as your fingers will help keep each other warm when together.
Read more about preparing for the cold on GuideGunnar's Clothing and Gears in the Arctic environment page.

When we are out there in the darkness, please keep your head light to yourself to not disturb the night sight for your fellow travellers. No camera flash, please!

Dinner around the camp fire is included

GuideGunnar’s Private tour in Tromsø offers an Autumn Soup hot meal, served by the camp fire.
Autumn Soup is a vegetarian soup of mixed vegetables, served with GuideGunnar’s home made bread. For meat lovers there is the Norwegian delicacy ‘Fenalår’, a dry cured lamb ham which has been part of the Norwegian cuisine for centuries. Fenalår is often compared with prosciutto or jamón curado, only it’s lamb.
