Tromsø, the wild coast…
From the tiny island of Sommarøy on the west side of Kvaløya, 69Nord’s team invites you to take a deep breath of fresh air and explore for a few hours a beautiful area, protected from the waves by a barrier reef of turquoise waters. Here we are at the limit of fjords and open sea to the west with it’s infinite horizon. The archipelago of Sommarøy is the domain of sea otters, puffins and sea eagles. White sand beaches give a tropical touch to these powerful and wild arctic landscapes.
