After dinner, it will be time for another amazing activity included in your package – the Arctic Lights Campfire Tour. The area around Sommarøy is a great spot to search for the Northern Lights because of the desolate beaches free from light pollution. With the sound of arctic waves crashing ashore, you are guaranteed a spectacular evening, especially if the sky is clear and the auroras show themselves. You will sit around the campfire, while waiting for the phenomenon to appear. During this time, small snack will be prepared over the fire and you can also enjoy a cup of hot drink to warm you up.
