Guided winter sea kayaking tour

Sommarøy Adventure

A paddle in the arctic light! The late autumn and winter months are some of the best seasons to kayak around Tromsø. The water is crystal clear, the air is crisp and clean and the early afternoon sunsets are beyond beautiful.

In autumn the the bright colours are spectacular, with white tipped peaks, untill the landscape is covered in white in winter.


In the darkest period from the end of November to end of January we are all about polar nights with the stars twinkling 24 hours a day when the weather is clear. Kayaking in the Arctic winter is actually warmer than you think!


Together we get dressed up in drysuits and kayak our way through the fjords, islands and archipelagos, all covered in snow. Even though the arctic winter is cold and unforgiving, a large amount of wildlife is thriving in the food rich areas up here, both under and over the sea surface. Look out for common eiders gathering urchins, White-tailed sea eagles scouting for prey, or a shy otter swimming away with its latest fish catch. Often a seal or two will also curiously show up by our side and follow us for a while.


Halfway through the tour we will find a nice beach, where we'll go ashore and explore. Here we will also enjoy a hot beverage to get some warmth in our bodies before heading back to the activity centre again.
