Join a kayak tour under the magical midnight sun!
Kayaking in a land that never sleeps. From the end of May to the end of July the sun above the arctic circle never sets, giving us 24 hours of daylight. Join us on this tour, kayaking in the beauty of the midnight sun.
As often as weather permits we head out to the coastal community of Sommarøy and surrounding archipelagos. The guide will pick a suitable location Here we see the sun a full 24 hours as it makes it way across the horizon. Sommarøy is a pittoresque village with a long history of fishing and coastal traditions dating back to the viking age and worth a visit all on it´s own.
In a kayak you move silently and in terms with the the rich bird and wildlife these waters offer. From seals, otters and sea eagles to the small porpoise whales that some times show up around the kayak due to their curious nature.
With sandy white beaches, clear waters and 1800 foot peaks streching up from behind, the scenery is magic and fulfilling. Under the midnight sun, mother nature shows herself from her best side.
This is a guided tour and you do not need previous experience to join us. A safety briefing and introduction to sea kayaking will be given before setting out. You can paddle singles or doubles.
