Weekend at Kråkeslottet!

 Skjermbilde 2017-09-29 kl. 20.05.25

Finally the dates are set for the upcoming weekend at Kråkeslottet!
All tangueros and tangueras are welcome, regardless of dancing experience! This is first and foremost a social event. There will be tango, sauna, ice-bathing, hiking, maybe some yoga, but most importantly good company, good food, laughter and quiet time by the sea – this is a true spa for the soul!

Details and practical info:
Transportation: We try to coordinate driving. If you have a car and can take passengers, or you need a ride, let us know.

Alternatively, take the boat from Tromsø Prostneset to Finnsnes, and continue by bus to Skaland (Berg) (see tromskortet.no). Let us know if you plan to do this, so we can arrange pick-up and drop-off at Skaland.

Food: Bring bread and spreads for breakfast/lunch Saturday and Sunday. We will cook dinner for everyone on Friday and Saturday. Please let us know if you have special dietary needs.
