Our island, Senja, is called Norway in miniature. This means there is great diversity. You can therefore choose activities and more every day without seeing everything. Therefore, you decide to do things while you are here to suit all your needs and wishes.

We are located on Senja Island - Norway

Far above the arctic circle lies Norway´s undiscovered gem, the fairytale island of Senja. Home to the majestic northern lights & beautiful scenery. Senja is Norway's second largest island, far above the Arctic Circle close to Tromsø City and only 5 hours from Lofoten. Here you are greeted an awe-inspiring mix of sea, mountains, beaches, fishing villages and inland areas, all within a few hours drive. The coast of the island is precipitous with sculptural rocks and colourful fishing villages in sheltered coves. The inland is filled with mountains, lakes and forests, and the mainland-facing coast sports unexpectedly green fields. The scenery in Senja and Central Troms is full of contrasts, with the midnight sun and the northern lights, depending on the season. The distance from the coast to big mountain peaks is short and is an ideal combination for those who participate in winter activities. 

How to get here

You can fly to Tromsø (TOS) or Bardufoss Airport (BDU) We always suggest Bardufoss airport as this is the closer option. If you go to Bardufoss (BDU) you travel with Norwegian Airlines from Oslo (OSL)
From Bardufoss you take the shuttle bus to the bus terminal, where we pick you up (pickup included) There is one shuttle bus for every arrival and you simply buy your bus ticket on the bus. 1 hour 15 minute drive
Tromsø is also a great option. From Tromsø you can take the daily boat going from Tromsø to Finnsnes. We also do pickups at Tromsø airport. 2 hours and 30 minute drive (1500 nok per person)
