Explore the rugged coastline in
magical winter light!

The archipalgo of Sommarøy hoasts a large colony of sea eagles year round. And to see them soar over the snowcapped mountains in the magical winter light is a remarkable sight.

On this guided tour we take you out in our well suited and heated boat and search the islands and cliffs for this majestic bird. You may also encounter other wildlife such as sea otters, harbour porpoises, tysties and other sea birds. At the same time we will explore the wild exposed coast of Sommarøy from the seaside, where the short winter daylight light up the snowcovered landscape in a unique colour palette, only seen in the arctic.

With a wingspan ranging up over two meters, viewing this bird up close is a majestic and unforgettable sight.

The trip is arranged on request, and a minimum of four persons is required to conduct the tour.

Staying in Tromsø? No worries! We also offer transfer by car to and from Tromsø city centre, with a price of 1.490 NOK in total. The transfer takes about 1 hour each way and is an experience in itself, driving across the majestic fjord and mountain landscapes of Kvaløya. Please choose the option including transfer when booking.

Please note that the tour is weather dependent, and that we might have to reschedule or cancel the tour due to bad weather conditions. A similar product or a full refund will be offered if you're not able to attend a rescheduled tour.
