Northern Lights Holidays to Sommarøy
Once you have visited Sommarøy you will understand why the small island of only 300 inhabitants is also referred to as 'Summer Island'. With its white sandy beaches and clear waters, even in the winter when the area is covered in a layer of snow, you will be able to appreciate the beauty of this remote island.
The island is situated around 35km from the city of Tromsø and is therefore an excellent place to venture after a stay in the city.
Besides the amazing Aurora displays that frequently make an appearance over Sommarøy, the other main draw to the island are the boat trips. Every year between November and January the waters surrounding the island are filled with visiting whales such as killer whales, humpback whales, and fin whales. This makes the area very popular with those visitors who wish to see these majestic creatures in their natural habitat.
