Midnight sun kayak tours

Sommarøy is a chosen place to go kayaking under the midnight sun. From end of may til the end of july the sun never sets in the arctic and on this guided tour we take you out into the ocean, to view this land of orange beauty. 

Moving slowly we watch the sun dipping towards the horizon just teasing it before rising again. The arctic just never seems to fall asleep. The birds and the maritime wildlife seems to never rest and the light is magic.

On this tour we seek out the best spots to view the midnight sun and we go ashore to enjoy the arctic night by the fire along with hot drinks.
