Fishing at 2000 meters in Melchsee-Frutt

It doesn't have to be the high North: a little bit of elevation is enough. Enormous fish tumble about in the waters of the frozen lakes of Melchsee-Frutt, at 2000 meters above sea level. Gusti Berchtold knows exactly where to find these fish. The experienced ice fisherman takes you to the best places to fish, helps you drill a hole in the ice and is always very helpful and ready with advice. Even if you don't catch anything, you have at least a spectacular view of the fairy-tale scenery.
