Northern lights sea kayaking
the most spectacular way to view the auroras
Join us on an evening excursion in view of the northern lights. Following the coastline, we will paddle away from all existing light pollution and in between the dark of the islands and archipelagos surrounding Sommarøy.
We will go ashore at our northern lights camp and spend time by the fire there warming up on hot beverages, a meal of homemade fishsoup and looking for the lights to appear. Late night we return to our kayak centre, hopefully under the light of the aurora borealis.
Minimum booking of 4 persons, ages 14 years and up.
1. Oktober – 1. April, Tuesdays and Fridays at 8PM-11PM aprox.
Slightly challenging. You must enjoy the adventure of being out in the arctic cold to enjoy this tour.
Meeting point: The Sommarøy Adventure activity centre (see map below) at 8pm.
We will fully equip you with dry suits, warm boots and gloves/hat and lights/headlamps. This is a guided tour that requires no previous experience, only a sense of nighttime adventure. A close safety briefing and instructions will be given at the beginning of the tour.
Our guides are skilled photographers, and will try to secure your photo under the lights if they appear:-)
As we work with changing weather conditions in the arctic, we may have to alter the route/activity or in worst case cancel due to safety. A cancellation is fully refunded.
