The menu is local food, and we promise you typical local meals with taste from Senja. We give you lectures on whales, the northern lights, the arctic cod and the history of Senja.
Whale safari and northern lights
We go out by boat to spot the large whales, orca and humpback whales. In recent years, the whales have come to Senja in the beginning of December, and stays in the waters around Senja until early February. We do whale watching by boat every day when weather permits. Whale watching is replaced by Wildlife safari (seals, sea eagles, moose and reindeer) during the period when it normally isn´t whales in the fjords (October-November and February-March).
We visit spectacular sites in hunting the magical Northern Lights. Posthuset Expedition logde is on the National Tourist Route Senja, with spectacular scenery and beautiful arctic lights all around. The expedition boat is a steady 23 foot Zodiac, and very suitable for whale watching and beach landing on one of the island in the beautiful Bergsfjorden. We reserve the right not to go out with the boat if weather conditions are bad.
