The arctic in our hearts
The raw landscape we live in creates emotions. We are priviliged to be allowed to work in such a stunning, but vulnerable landscape. The archipelago around Sommarøy is wild and unique, from steep mountains and sheer cliffs straight into the ocean, to sandy white beaches and marine wildlife. These are some of the unique highlights of the arctic north.
In a sea kayak we become one with nature, experiencing the rich wildlife and scenery up close. One of the most majestic is perhaps the sea eagle that dominates the sky above us on certain days. We also come across sea otters, seals and porpoises to mention a few. The diversity of marine birds and plants up here is large, enriching our every day adventures. To be able to survive and thrive in the arctic, plants and animals have to specialise in both phenology and behaviour, making the animal and plant life here unique and beautiful, but also extra vulnerable in our time of climate change. To not negatively affect our already pressured wildlife, we strive to minimise our footprint every day. Keeping our vulnerable arctic playground alive and thriving for generations to come is a huge responsibility we take very seriously. We hope you as guests also will keep this in mind when visiting our beautiful arctic paradise! .
