Sea kayaking in Tromsø and the archipelagos of Sommarøy. Explore the fjords and islands in this part of Northern Norway. On this guided tour you can explore the arctic wild by kayak without any previous experience.
On this tour we visit the hotspots for sea kayaking and as often as weather permits we head out to the coastal community of Sommarøy and surrounding archipelagos. 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 sea kayak you are close to the water, moving quietly along, getting close to the rich bird and wildlife these waters offer. From seals and sea eagles to the small porpoise whales that some times show up around the kayak due to their curious nature.
With sandy white beaches, clear waters and 1800 foot peaks stretching up from behind pitorescue fishing villages. The scenery is magic and fulfilling.
A safety briefing and introduction to sea kayaking will be given before we set out. You have the choice of paddling singles or doubles.
Equipped in dry suits we set out for a full day exploring the arctic wild. The guide will pick, according to the weather, a suitable place for the day to make sure your expectations are met.
During the day, we set of plenty time to go ashore, to rest and take pictures, together with a snack and hot drinks.
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.
