Visit beautiful Senja and try fun activities like ski touring, winter fishing and tobogganing, accompanied by the spectacle of the northern lights.
Imagine that you are far away from civilisation. It’s completely silent, and you are breathing in pure, fresh air. Above your head the majestic northern lights are dancing across the night sky. When was the last time you experienced complete silence?
There is a famous saying that Norwegians are born with skis on their feet, and it is true that many of us love being active in the great outdoors during winter. The sound of granular snow under our feet, of cross-country skis gliding along a perfectly groomed trail, or of excited adults and children tobogganing down a hill are three good reasons to enjoy the winter. There are several options for getting to Senja.
If your aim is to see the northern lights, the professional guides always know exactly where to go. The wild nature turns the aurora chase into an eventful trip for body and soul. And if you are lucky, you might spot moose, eagles, seals, and reindeer along the way.
After a long day outside, it’s hard to beat sitting in a warm grill cabin or, perhaps even better, in a wood-fired outdoor hot tub. Let the conversation flow freely whilst you enjoy a grilled hot dog or a refreshing drink.
