About us

The Aurora Borealis Observatory is a small family driven resort located at Senja Island in Northern Norway. The resort was founded in 2018 and are owned and operated by Anders Hanssen and Kristine Kjosnes, who live on location. It is safe to say that we love the aurora and we feel lucky and blessed being able to live at such prime location. This place is for those who really want to experience nature, silence and to get total relaxation while hopefully enjoying the amazing Aurora Borealis.

We have our own small and family driven resort, "The Aurora Borealis Observatory" and our specialisation is 100% focus of enjoying the Aurora Dance. Our guides have many years of experience and knowledge. They will teach you how to create the best possible photo- and videography, at our workshops. While staying here you can also explore the beauty and culture of Senja Island. You can also participate in many different activities, during day and night. All of our apartments have a big glass front, directed toward an amazing view. You can sit inside the apartment or in our outdoor relaxed area and jacuzzi, and enjoy the amazing Aurora Dance.

Enjoy the silence and lovely atmosphere where your well-being is in focus. Our goal is to create the best Aurora Borealis experience

I've been passionate about photography since I was young. In pursuit of the good Northern Lights experiences for many years, I have now attempted to create a small but adapted place for our guests to experience the Northern Lights in the same way as us who live here in the cold north.

Kristine Kjosnes

I am proud to be able to show off the northern lights from the wonderful place we are so lucky to live on. The experience of being in a dark place with amazing views is amazing. It is a pleasure to be able to shape a place as we think it will create the best experiences. Welcome to us

Magnus Hanssen

We have a great resort that is constantly developing. Being able to work with the dissemination of the good experiences is amazing. We will try to make sure that you get the best Northern Lights experience ever, here at the observatory. If there is something convenient to fix, please contact me
