Experiencing the Tromsø area from sea level offers an entirely different perspective. Kayaking is not only fun and exciting – if challenging and intense at times, it also allows you to get up close to local marine wildlife. With an experienced guide, you paddle on the fjord with Tromsø’s lofty mountains as a stunning backdrop. This is the land of the midnight sun and it never gets dark during summer. No paddling experience is required to join this excursion, your guide provides initial instruction before you head out on the water and assists you throughout the entire tour. We use stable, double-hulled sea kayaks to ensure the highest degree of safety.
