From the wonderful and tiny Island of Sommarøy (1hour from Tromsø), we offer a six days Hiking and Sail-Kayaking trip. Our hybrids kayaks (Hobie Tandem island) cannot capsize, are fast, easy to use and give satisfaction from the first minute. This trip is suited for beginners, families and confirmed users and offers a unique way to watch the wildlife from the outer coastal area. A breath of wild air off the beaten paths is guaranteed. Our sailing area is protected from the swell by the reef and is the otter's, puffin's and sea eagle's kingdom.
We start the tour on Saturday at 9am (09:00). After instructions on how to steer a sailing kayak, we take off for our 6 days adventure with hiking and sail-kayaking. Short distances are covered every day. We bivouac every night near the walk of the following day.
Hiking opportunities are numerous and varied. The playground for adventures is immense and hiking choices almost unlimited. We can stop on several islands such as Senja, Tussøya, Høgøya, Håja, Sessøya, Gjøssøya, Vengsøya, Rebbenesøya, Hersøya and Ringvassøya The hiking pace and range are based on the overall group level and suited to meet everyone’s preference.
We are back to the small fishing village of Sommarøy on Thursday afternoon, around 5pm (17:00). We store the Sailyaks and the equipment and end the trip at 6pm (18:00).
