Plan your trip to Senja & Central Troms

Want both soothing nature and pumping adrenaline? Yes please! Go hiking under the midnight sun, or skiing under the northern lights. You could even experience your best two-wheeled adventure ever.

Situated far above the Arctic Circle, and less crowded than many other northern places in Northern Norway, Senja and Central Troms is heaven for outdoor enthusiasts.

Hamn is the largest resort, and offers a variety of winter activities from ice fishing, snowshoeing and ski touring, to northern lights expeditions and wildlife safaris. There are challenging hiking and biking trails with rewarding views everywhere, and beautiful views along the National Scenic Route Senja.

Senja and Central Troms is one of the world's richest fishing grounds. Spend the night in a rorbu, a traditional fisherman’s cabin, before heading out to try your luck at fishing. If you are more of an adrenaline-seeker, you can join a RIB tour in historical Bergsfjorden.
