We start the trip from Tromsø city center with about 1 hour drive in beautiful surroundings out to Sommarøy. The island offers river beaches, stunning views and a living fishing village. Sommarøy is worth a visit!
We go by boat from Sommarøy to beautiful Hekkingen – the island which is on the outer side of the sea. The tour takes about 20 minutes in an offshore certified boat with walkaraound and a small flybridge with 360 degree views.
Hekkingen lighthouse is one of Northern Norway’s oldest, and is marked on the map as one of the finest places to experience the midnight sun.
At the bird cliff on Hekkingen there is a large oat stock.
There may be great opportunities to get close contact with the sea eagle if it comes to the boat to catch a fish. Be well prepared to bring a spectacular photo of the giant bird.
Other bird species you can see is; puffins, cormorants, eagles and various seagulls. We will also try the fish luck on the trip.
