Day 1
This adventure begins with a speedboat ride from Alta, passing through Hammerfest, and arriving at Gunnarnes on Rolvsøya. Welcomed by Siss, the gracious host, your luggage gets transferred to Tufjord, where you’ll be staying for the night. Pedal across the island with a pit stop at the local shop at Gunnarnes. After settling into Tufjord, a group dinner awaits, fostering introductions and camaraderie. Evening strolls along Dronningstien are a possibility for those up for it.

Stoppelfjorden—a paradise on earth. An entire day is dedicated to hiking, with a relaxing hot tub
and refreshing drinks waiting back at Tufjord.

A leisurely breakfast with ample time to pack lunches marks the last day. Options abound as the
group approaches Sunday: an excursion or individual exploration. Rolvsøya offers diverse
opportunities—whether savouring coffee and strolling in Tufjord, biking to Kalven, or collecting
memorable moments. The journey heads towards Tunæringen, followed by a ride to Nordhamna for lunch. The ambitious can continue pedalling to Kalven.
