Midnight sun sea kayaking
This tour is conducted by Sommarøy Adventure.
Kayaking in a land that never sleeps. From the end of May to the end of July the sun above the arctic circle never sets, giving us 24 hours of daylight.
As often as weather permits it, we head out to the coastal community of Sommarøy and the surrounding archipelagos. When the weather is clear, we see the sun 24 hours a day, as it makes it way across the horizon. Sommarøy is a pittoresque village with a long history of fishing and coastal traditions dating back to the viking age, and worth a visit all on it´s own.
In a kayak you move silently and in terms with the rich bird and wildlife these waters offer. From seals, otters and sea eagles to the small porpoise whales, that sometimes show up around the kayak due to their curious nature.
With sandy white beaches, clear waters and 1800 foot peaks streching up from behind, the scenery is magic and fulfilling. Under the midnight sun, mother nature shows herself from her best side.
This is a guided tour and you do not need previous experience to join us. A safety briefing and introduction to sea kayaking will be given before setting out. You may paddle singles or doubles.
Equipped in dry suits we set off for a full night exploring the arctic wild. The guide will pick, according to the weather, a suitable place for the evening to make sure your expectations are met.
Moving slowly we take plenty of time to go ashore to rest, explore and take pictures.
If you want to be more adventurous the guide will be more than happy to both demonstrate and let you participate in rescue drills to increase your sea kayaking skills. Just let us know.
