Exclusive three days Northern Lights expedition on spectacular Senja - dogsledding and fjord cruise included

  • Posthuset Expedition Lodge, Skaland
  •  /  km From You
Overview

This tour is conducted by Basecamp Senja. Welcome to an exiting all inclusive three day Northern Lights expedition on Senja, including a dogsledding tour and a fjord cruise.

The expedition starts every Monday-Wednesday and every Thursday-Saturday, and includes Northern Lights-safari, dogsledding, fjordcruise at Senja, Scenic Route Senja, accommodation, all meals, lectures, coffe/tea/fruit/cake during your stay, transfer Finnsnes-Senja-Finnsnes.

We decide the program from day to day according to the weather forecast, with activity in the morning and in the evening. Two nights we go out hunting for the magic of the Northern Lights. Senja has very good locations to get the ultimate Northern Lights experience from spectacular view points.

All meals are included, and we serve warm homemade lunch and dinner made out of North Norwegian food. In addition you can have as much coffee, tea, fruit and cake as you want throughout your stay.

Accommodation will be at Posthuset or Bedehuset: Posthuset Expedition Lodge is a cosy lodge with ten sleeping places. The sleeping places are "cabins" with ceilings and walls, and only curtains to cover the entrance, please see pictures at www.basecampsenja.no. The lodge is located right by the shoreline, which is also a very good location to explore the magic Northern Lights. Our new lodge, Bedehuset, is located 150 metres from Posthuset, and has a private double room with private bathroom.

Basecamp Senja received very good feedback from the guests. This expedition is exclusive, and is best suited for those who prefer to stay in small groups, and explore great winter adventures.

It will be an experienced guide/host with you most of the time.
