A bit short notice, but hey – why not be sponaneous?!
There will be tango, sauna, ice-bathing, some physical labor, good company, good food, laughter and quiet time by the sea – a true spa for the soul!

Details and practical info:
Transport: We try to coordinate driving. If you have a car and can take passengers, or you need a ride, let us know. Directions: https://goo.gl/maps/qh1NN3odA172

 Alternatively, take the boat at 16.00 from Tromsø Prostneset HB

(Tromsø) 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 spreads for breakfast/lunch Saturday and Sunday. Georg will bake bread, and we will make waffles for lunch on Saturday and possibly rice porridge for lunch on Sunday. We will cook dinner Friday and Saturday.

Dietary needs: We plan to serve fish and maybe meat. Please let us know well ahead of time if you have special dietary needs.

Accomodation: There are plenty of sleeping space, some shared rooms and some single ones. Please bring a sleeping bag if you can, to limit Georg’s washload of bedlinen.

Sauna: bring swimsuit and a towel!  .. and for the really daring ones – ice-bathing!

Dugnad: the plan is to oil and paint the boats, and maybe oil the quay if the weather permits it. Bring warm work clothes and work gloves, if you have.
