HAve you seen
the light?

At Sommaroy, one hour from the Arctic capital Tromso, you'll find a natural beauty like nowhere else.


Sommaroy, Norway

In winter, or to be exact – from early September to late March, the northern lights are right there on your doorstep – no safari, hike or outdoor sleeping necessary. Thanks to the lack of light pollution on the scarcely populated island, you can step onto the balcony with a cosy blanket and enjoy a hot drink while watching the colourful lights dance in the sky. Sommaroy is the end of the road at Tromso municipality – next island is Greenland!

Resturant and bar

Our restaurant serve high quality food with Arctic touch. We also have nice plates for vegetarians and vegans. Most of our food is from the area or produced at the house.


Did you know that the Northern Lights are always there? All you need is darkness. Most people believe it has to be winter to see the Northern Lights, but September and October are lovely autumn months for Aurora. The temperatures are not as freezing cold and you could stay out for longer.
