Out and about nearby

Despite it being the second largest island in Norway, Senja is a lot quieter than most other destinations, giving you chance to truly appreciate the scenery and tranquillity of this beautiful area. The Senja National Tourist Route will take you along the island’s rugged outer coastline, whilst other areas of interest include the Bergsbotn viewing platform which offers an outlook onto the town of Bergsfjord and the surrounding peaks. Hiking is a popular activity here, with the most popular route being Segla. The beaches are also well-worth a visit, in particular Ersfjord Beach, a white-sand beach in the town of Ersfjord. Senja is known for its fishing villages, the most active of which is Husøy. This town sits on an island in the middle of the Øyfjord and is worth visiting for the views en route alone.
