Overview

Enjoy north Norway’s midnight sun from the water on a guided summer evening kayak trip from Tromsø. Paddle around Kvaløya island, exploring scenic fjords and admiring the surrounding mountains, bays, and forests bathed in the half-light of the midnight sun. Watch for wildlife and if you wish, try some fishing. Suitable for beginner and seasoned kayakers, your experience includes dinner, all required kayaking gear, and round-trip transfers.
  • 5.5-hour evening midnight sun kayaking experience from Tromsø
  • Enjoy the half-light of the midnight sun on a guided kayak trip
  • Paddle around fjords against a majestic mountain backdrop
  • Watch for marine wildlife and try some optional fishing
  • Dinner and all necessary equipment included
  • Suitable for first-time and seasoned kayakers
  • Includes round-trip transport with central pickup and drop-off
Depart central Tromsø in the evening by comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle and travel to Kvaløya, the large and scenic island just outside the city.

On route, appreciate the beautiful half-twilight: your trip is timed to coincide with north Norway’s midnight sun, when for a month in mid-summer, the sun never fully sets. Learn how the ocean and this midnight sun are both central to north Norway’s culture and history.

Once on Kvaløya, hop out at one of the picturesque beaches, and get an introduction to kayaking from your guide. After a safety briefing, don the provided clothing — including spray jackets and gloves — and climb into your kayak. Double kayaks are available and ideal for beginners, but if you’re experienced, ask your guide in advance about a single kayak.

Get instructions on steering and paddling — the basics are easy to master — and set off over the crystal-clear waters behind your guide kayak. Your guide will choose a route according to the weather, and design it to provide you with the most rewarding midnight-sun and scenic experience.

Trace Kvaløya’s rugged shores and paddle along beautiful fjords, drinking in the magnificent views of north Norway’s mountains, birch forests, and beaches along the way. Enjoy the natural wonder of the midnight light and watch for marine life and sea birds, all active in the half-light of this time of day. If you wish, stop to try your hand at some fishing, north-Norwegian style.

When it’s time, come ashore and follow up your kayaking with a delicious dinner of traditional local fare. Your 5.5-hour experience then ends back at the start point in Tromsø in the early hours of morning.

It was overall great, fantastic guide.
However, the trip was not fully explained and the place where we changed outfits was in a quite poor condition.
(ex. Bring pairs of dry socks, clothes in case of getting wet)
If the weather is good, it will be a fabulous trip.
But overall, I had a great time and enjoyed fully.
