This package includes a Midnight Sun Cruise, guided hike in the national park (by snowshoes in May), bird watching, guide, fjord expedition, accommodation, all meals and transport from Finnsnes.
The first two weeks in May is the season for gathering seagull eggs, which is a typical North Norwegian tradition. In May / June, snowshoeing is possible. There is also an abundant birdlife and we will take you to the best spots for birding and photography. July and August is high summer in the Arctic and the golden rays of the Midnight Sun provide bright nights in Senja. We arrange exiting nighttime activities such as a guided hike in the national park in Senja. We take tents and spend the summer’s night out in the great outdoors.
Monday: Hike in national park, bonfire, overnight in tent; Tuesday: Exploring the National park and Midnight Sun fjord expedition; Wednesday: Birding and views “to the North Pole”; Thursday: National Tourist Route of Senja and departure day. See more information and program at www.basecampsenja.no
