Traveling about an hour by car you reach Sommerøy from Tromsø. The final destination is absolutely worth the trip. Cosy place with fantastic staff!!!!! You have to ask the man who runs the hotel to sing for you! He may even ask his daughter to sing with him! Great atmosphere and nice rooms. Good local food in the restaurant.

A modern, clean and cozy hotel in a gorgeous location by the water. The restaurant and lounge area have an English-countryside style, with library and fireplace, and the food is excellent and features local products. If you go in the summer, you can enjoy your meal on a terrasse with view over the bay. Don't hesitate to ask the staff... More

While the title may seem a bit harsh to the good people of Sommaroy. The Sommaroy Arctic Hotel in the early dark of February had that kind of feel, a welcome refuge of warmth and light. There is a surreal quality to the three nights we spent there as we watched the place blossom around us. Wonderful staff, brilliant food,stunning... More

We did not have time to stay at Sommaroy on this trip but decided to head out to the hotel for an evening meal before watching the northern lights from the mountains on the way back into Tromsø. The menu was diverse with plenty of choice, the Reindeer was excellent, the best we had on our two week trip around... More

We stayed here for two nights off season and had a really relaxing break. The rooms were great - simple, clean, comfortable and the staff were very approachable. They helped us locate walking trails around the island so we were able to explore. The restaurant is the only one around (except for a little cafe over the bridge which was... More

My wife and I had a 5 day, 4 night visit to northern Norway to attempt to see the Northern Lights and do some whale watching. After my wife did some extensive research, we chose the Sommaroy Arctic Hotel, and we are very glad that we did. We booked direct flights from Gatwick to Tromso with Norwegian Airlines(only available at... More

Stayed one night for some northern light spotting and sightseeing around the Sommarøy/Tromsø area. Very nice and friendly staff. Rooms are spacious and with good beds. Nice design and furniture ! Missed things like a coffee maker, wine glass, minibar etc but im sure the reception would help you with all this if needed. Great food in the restaurant. Breakfast... More
