    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: When you will come here try to keep in your mind that the North Pole is not far :)
    Take with you the clothes for cold time. Not more under zero. If it is more...it will be a good ideea to remain in a pub. Even if is not warm it will be a lot of smoke at least...
    What is 100% sure is that you will never need a swimming suit...only if you are going to the swiming pool...Yes they have one up here.

    Photo Equipment: Do not forget the camera...actually this is all what you need.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Fishing trouts in the rivers and lakes aroud is an option... take a fishing line with you. It seems that fishing trouts is open for all the year in Hammerfest.

    Miscellaneous: If you like to drink something... bring drinks with you. Even if is the northernmost city....it is still Norway up here.

    Be prepared to walk on this Some gloves will be always welcome I prefere my water even if the lake is looking ok Do not even think about swimming here :) An option-go for fishing in the mountains
