We start this unique excursion by car from Tromsø and drive along the coast of Kvaløya island to beautiful Sommarøy, making stops along the way to take pictures, enjoy the beautiful scenery and try to spot animals and birds.

Sommarøy is a vibrant fishing community with sandy beaches and stunning views of the open sea. This is the starting point for one of the highlights of the trip – a one-hour trip by rigid inflatable boat (RIB) in the Sommarøy archipelago on the outer coast of Kvaløya.

Enjoy the breathtaking nature while keeping an eye out for the rich bird and animal life. Species you are likely to experience include reindeer, moose, otters, eagles, seals, cormorants and other sea birds. If you are here from November to February, it may also be possible to spot orcas and humpback whales.

This is a perfect family-friendly day trip for those wishing to photograph and experience the unique Arctic light and wildlife from different perspectives. We will navigate slowly and calmly while taking pictures of beautiful scenery. There is a large population of white-tailed sea eagles and excellent opportunities to experience the species close-up. Get your camera ready to capture a spectacular photo of this giant bird.

When we head ashore, there will be time to explore and photograph beautiful Sommarøy at your leisure. Another highlight of this trip is a delicious hot lunch at the Sommarøy Arctic Hotel. Depending on the day you visit, the lunch will be self-service from a plentiful buffet or a choice of several dishes from the menu. Vegetarian options are always available.

Please note: If the boat trip must be cancelled due to extreme weather or wind conditions, the tour will be completed as a wildlife safari by car and each participant will receive a refund of NOK 350.
