Join us on a memorable trip to experience the wonderful nature within easy range of Tromsø. We start by driving along the coast of the island of Kvaløya to the beautiful village of Sommarøy. We will stop along the way to take pictures and enjoy the beautiful scenery.
Sommarøy is a vibrant fishing community with sandy beaches and stunning views of the open sea. This is the starting point for one of the highlights of the trip – a one-hour boat trip in the Sommarøy archipelago on the outer coast of Kvaløya.
You can enjoy the breathtaking nature while keeping an eye out for the rich bird and animal life. You can experience species such as reindeer, moose, otters, eagles, cormorants and other sea birds all year-round. If you are here from November to February, it may be possible to spot orcas and humpback whales.
This is a perfect family-friendly day trip for those wishing to photograph and experience the unique Arctic light and wildlife from different perspectives. We will navigate slowly and calmly while taking pictures of beautiful scenery!
Weather permitting, we will take a longer boat trip out to the spectacular island of Hekkingen on the outer coast of Senja.

The island is also home to a large population of white-tailed sea eagles, which provides excellent opportunities for close-up experiences with the white-tailed sea eagle. Get your camera ready to capture a spectacular photo of this giant bird.
When we head ashore, there will be time to explore and photograph beautiful Sommarøy. Another of the highlights of this trip is the delicious lunch at the Sommarøy Arctic Hotel.
