Three day Arctic Kayaking Adventure - Elements Arctic CampDate: Friday 2 mar 2018 - Friday 31 Aug 2018
Experience a spectacular Arctic archipelago from our campsite on the island of Rebbenesøy.
You will spend the night in a yurt, paddle in magnificent scenery, enjoy local food and get close to an Arctic wildlife and coastal life. The camp is without traffic and electricity, and our 2 yurts are like modern nomadic tents, rustic but at the same time very comfortable. This overall provides a special atmosphere and a unique proximity to nature!
This is the place to experience - quietness, a lot of weather, northern lights, midnight sun, and other amazing color schemes and natural phenomena that the different seasons offer.
We pick you up in the center of Tromsø, and after a 90-minute drive we end up at Mikkelvika. From there it is a 10-minute ferry ride to Rebbenesøy and then a 15-minute walk to the camp. After lodging we eat a small meal and we prepare for a paddling evening trip. Back in the camp we make a common meal and enjoy this in a yurt or around a campfire.
The next day after a good breakfast, we get ready for a full day kayaktrip. We will paddle along beautiful islands, around islets and sheaves, surrounded by majestic mountains while be able watching the horizon. The crystal-clear water makes it possible to study the marine life. It is common to see eagles, otters, seals and different seabirds on the same trip, maybe also a porpoise, or dolphin appears. During the lunch we make coffee and food on a campfire and enjoy a spectacular view.
After breakfast we plan a 3-4 hours paddle trip, alternatively we drive south on the island and get to know the life of the island. We aim for a hike where you can enjoy a spectacular panoramic view from one of the island's beautiful mountains.
After the activities, we will be ready for the return.
