Sea kayaking tours

sea Kayaking

Sommarøy is a world class location for sea kayaking. The islands and archipelagos are a treasure to explore and the sandy white beaches hidden among the coves, give pristine places to go ashore for a break. On this three hour tour, we will show you the highlights of the area and enjoy a good rest by the fire at a chosen location.

Sea kayaking is one of the best ways to enjoy the scenery and maritime wildlife that surrounds Sommarøy. Moving slowly and in close contact with nature you can observe a variety oof birds from puffins and the majestic sea eagle to the small and curious  porpoise dolphins that naturally habitate in the area.
