From the lively city Tromsø, surrounded by mountains, fjords and islands, starts a nice bikeride through a beautiful and varied scenery on Kvaløya, outwards to the south side of the coast and the island Sommarøy. The trip continues with ferry to Senja, Norway's second largest island! The road along the the seaward side of Senja to Gryllefjord, winds through a magnificent scenery, uphill and downhill - in and out of fjords. A short detour to the small hamlet Husøy is reccommended. Husøy (the House Island) is a small island about 1000 meters long and 500 meters wide. Nice hosting are ready to welcome you. Hiking, kayaking or fishing is possible during the tour. And there are possible to do longer daytrips, the choice is Yours!
Excellent as a long weekend trip!
About the midnight sun The midnight sun is a natural phenomenon which means that the sun does not set during the summer months. In other words, given fair weather, you can see the sun for a continuous 24 hours. The duration of the midnight sun depends on how far north you are. At the Arctic Circle in the county of Nordland, you can see the midnight sun from 12 June to 1 July, at the North Cape in Finnmark you can see the sun from 14 May to 29 July, and at the North Pole the sun does not set for six months.
