Welcome to Northern Norway Travel!

Sommarøy Arctic day trip- a round tour of Kvaløya island

We will take you with us on a raw but safe experience – with a weathered smile on our faces

About our tour

Nestled between Tromsø island and the vast Norwegian sea lies Norway’s 5th largest island, Kvaløya. This magnificent island really has it all, from towering mountain peaks, endless fjords, quaint fishing villages, and unique Arctic wildlife.

The journey starts here

We start our journey when we pick you up from your hotel in a Mercedes Sprinter minibus where you will meet your hosts for the day. 

From Fjords to Coast

Our first stop is at Northern Norway’s most stunning fjord. Pointing due West, the view of rugged snow-capped peaks leading into the sea never gets old. 

Continue your drive on Kvaløya island through a remote valley until you meet the coast, where colourful fishing huts are dotted along the coastline.

Arctic Wildlife

Keep your eyes open from reindeer along the way. Kvaløya is home to 2 large reindeer herds which roam freely in the summer and your guide will tell you about the fascinating Sami culture along the route. 

But that’s not all the Arctic wildlife you may see seals, moose, habour porpoises, and white-tailed eagles can also be spotted in on island. 

Summer Islands

At Sommarøy your host will take you to a remote beach, where you can admire the stunning Arctic views, while sipping a hot chocolate. After that, have a delicious local lunch on Sommarøy with post-card perfect views over the islands.

After lunch, continue your round-trip on “whale island” along the remote Southern coastline passing traditional local farms. 


Arctic Memories

Return to Tromsø in the afternoon fulfilled by a day of stunning Arctic scenery, tasty local food, knowledge about local culture and history, and hopefully some new friendships. Your hosts will drop you off at your hotel in the city centre and will send you your digital photo album of Arctic memories.
