Great and beautiful location-only 50 minutes drive from Tromso, with white beach just nearby, where people can make grill/fire, enjoy sunset, northern lights, spectacular views of many small islands , or take hike to Hilesoy with its view to open see...-one of my 2-3 top places/locations for fjords and northern ligts tours around Tromso, highly recommended...

we stayed at a different place but came here for drinks / food several times. they have a surprisingly (for norway and this being remote location) good selection of red wines. I loved the corner with the bookshelfs in front of the fire place. Since we visited in June, I wondered whether there would be fire during Winter. We had...

The Sommarøy Arctic Hotel has rooms and cabins, we stayed in a cabin. First impressions always count when checking into a place, the SAH is currently undergoing major building work so a large area outside is a building site. The Reception wasn't staffed when we arrived but she arrived a short time later. Her attitude though was indifferent and unhelpful...

Hello and thank you for your feedback! We are happy to hear you think the food was excellent! Also good to hear that you enjoyed our seaside cabins. We apologize so much that you were told, that you could not drive to the seaside cabin. This must be a misunderstanding from our part, due to the construction work period. There...

The location of this hotel is unique, 1 hour's drive from Tromsø through a very beautiful landscape. What makes this hotel unique is the location, and the staff. Also, the food served at the hotel is fine, as well as the rooms. Choose this hotel for the location, the views and the enthusiastic staff.

I have spent a few nights in a sea cabin with my family in late January (2012) while hunting the northern lights. This place offers an amazing and unique experience and it is just perfect for seeing the Aurora (if you are lucky). We have been lucky and I think this was the greatest travel experience I have ever had.

A group of friends made a day trip from Tromso to Sommaroy at the end of June. Was surprised to see sandy beaches North of the Arctic Circle. The hotel has a great restaurant on the water ! Beautiful, sunny day so we all ate out on the deck. Food was good ! Good menu and reasonably priced !

Friendly staff. Welcoming good food and a nice environment for a walk which was a nice change after cycling all day. The hotel was currently renovated which took away a little bit of its charm. Still a nice place to stay. The three course dinner which was included in our cycle tour was excellent and even a bit too much...

We spend a couple of nights in a seaside cabin in February. The cabin had a lovely location right on the beach, providing privacy. Typical basic Nordic style, basically all wood, with good layout. It was fully equipped for self-catering and had a small sauna fitting 2. It is just a few 100 yards to the main building and restaurant...

We almost missed this hotel as it looked a bit like a building site due to the work on the extension. Once inside the door we received a warm welcome and a secure place to put our bikes. After settling into our spacious and comfortable room we had a good explore of Sommaroy before dinner. Sommaroy is magical, lots of...
