Tromsø has even more to offer than the beautiful city itself: whatever supernatural artist painted the magical landscape of the area must have shaken their brush one last time before they finished their masterpiece and sprayed their sea-canvas with small dots of land, each a small, lovely island of their own. And one of those islands created was named Store Sommarøya (the big Island of Summer), about one hour drive from Tromsø.
The tour starts from in Tromsø city center where you will be picked up and taken on a scenic drive to the island (the trail starts right before the island of Sommarøy). On the way, we make a quick stop at Hella, a popular historical area along the coast. Here you will receive a lunch package to bring with you on the hike.
The hike itself is a quite easy hike of approximately 1km, climbing 136 meters to the top of Ørnfløya. From the top you will get breathtaking views to Sommarøya and Hillesøya and other neighbouring islands including Senja and Håja which was the source of inspiration for the designing of the Arctic Cathedral in Tromsø.
Surrounded by these incredible views we will have enough time to eat our lunch, relax and snap some great landscape photos and portraits.
Once we have made our way back down, you will be driven back to Tromsø.
