Wanna hike on top of the world?


A hiking tour on our island or our neighbor island Sørøya and Seiland is an unforgettable experience. Come with us and hike under the midnight sun in amazing nature. Marvel at the beauty of long sandy beaches and impressive coastal landscapes.

Take the express boat from Hammerfest and start your hike in Akkarfjord on Sørøya. From here you can hike to Kjøttvik beacon, an amazing 12,5 m high sea beacon on the northern outskirts of the island. Or stretch yourself even a bit longer and climb down to Tarhalsen, the tip of the island. Run down the sand mountain and make a stop at Gamvik Nordre, a cozy B&B with a sheep farm. A tour closer to home is a hike to mountain Tyven, from which you can overlook the whole town and the majestic islands Seiland and Sørøya.
