    Day 5 - Scale the summit on snowshoes

    Snowshoeing is a great way to experience the arctic winter. On this tour we bring you to the mountain range of Kattfjordeidet and take you up on one of the accessible summits.

    You will have to work up a sweat on this tour, but the reward is a great day out with a splendid view of the surrounding fjords and mountain ranges.

    After our descent we head down to a café by the name of bryggerjentene for a cup of hot chocolate or coffee and some home made kake. This café situated on the docks in the fjord of Ersfjorden is a well hidden gem run by locals, in breathtaking surroundings.

    Please note: there are other options such as a sea eagle safari by boat if snowshoeing is too challenging for you.

    In the evening head out for a Northern Lights tour. Just a 3-minutes drive or 20 minutes by foot from the hotel is Halvars place. He is a local inhabitant that has lived at Sommarøy all of his life and he is a unique individual full of knowledge and stories about life in the Arctic.

The Northern Lights park provides shelter, heated premises and toilet facilities. The parks location is unique and the building is gently placed in the nature. With almost no light pollution, to ensure perfect photos of the Northern lights.
