Ice Fishing, catch of a trout

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