Sunset Kayaking on Sommarøy

Pukka Travels

This tour is conducted by Pukka Travels. Sommarøy, the small island west of Tromsø, is an ideal place for kayaking. You will be on the front row to witness the marvelous midnight sun as you paddle quietly through the turquoise water.
Our Midnight Sun Kayak Adventure runs for only two months per year, during the magical period when the sun never sets above the Arctic Circle. Late at night, when the sun is low but still visible, and its light spreads over the calm water surface, it feels almost like paddling through liquid gold. The late hour's lack of noise from human activity creates a great stillness, but the wildlife is fully awake. Glide through clear waters, smell the sea, spot and listen to eagles and seabirds nearby, and feel immersed with the nature of the Arctic. The midnight sun is up from the end of May till the end of July. This tour is running also after the midnight sun period, and will then be more of a sunset kayaking.

Your instructor will meet you directly at Sommarøy. The exact location is sent out at the point of booking and can be found on your booking confirmation. Sommarøy is famous for its natural beauty with white sandy beaches and turquoise waters, and it's an ideal place for paddling. Your dedicated and knowledgeable guide will introduce you to the tour, the techniques, and the safety, and set you up with premium gear including a drysuit that is perfect for kayaking. No previous experience is needed to get started – this tour is designed for participants of all levels to be able to join.

We always keep the groups small and each participant will have time to get personal coaching from the instructor. Safety is always our number one priority, and you will be in good hand throughout the entire experience. Take the chance to ask questions about the local nature and culture as you enjoy the magical light. Collect memories and take photos of a lifetime – this really is the best that the Norwegian Arctic summer has to offer!
