Best Kept Secret: Midnight Sun Hike & Sami Culture

Our Midnight Sun Hike and Sami Culture tour includes an introduction to the Coastal Sami culture through stories and seeing interesting sights on our mountain hike to look for the Midnight Sun shining over the Lyngen Alps

Not far away from Tromsø in a hidden fjord, you will find an Arctic paradise that remains largely untouched. This is where we offer you Tromsø’s best kept secret, consisting of the best North Norwegian hospitality and warmth at the end of the road, where the scenery is at its most spectacular.

The tour starts with a scenic drive between fjords and mountains. On arrival in the serene and wild Nakka Valley, we visit the site of a former Sami camp and learn a little about Sami history. We then head off on our longer hike towards the mountain pass, giving you a superb view of some of the highest peaks in Northern Norway, the Lyngen Alps, bathing in the golden glow from the Midnight Sun.

This is a medium level hike, but you sure will be rewarded for your effort. We stop during the walk to investigate interestin g and unique Sami sites, enjoy the scenery , take photos and learn more about our magical place and the Arctic environment. During a longer break, we serve hot drinks and snacks.
