Senja is the second largest island in Norway (not counting Svalbard). Beautiful Senja is Norway's second largest island, located far above the Arctic Circle: an awe-inspiring mix of sea, mountains, beaches, fishing villages and inland areas, all within a few hours drive. The Oceanside of the island is precipitous with sculptural rocks and colorful fishing villages in sheltered coves. The inland is filled with mountains, lakes and forests, and the mainland-facing coast sports unexpectedly green fields. The scenery in Senja and Central Troms is full of contrasts, with the midnight sun and the northern lights, depending on the season. The distance from the coast to “raw” mountain peaks is short and is an ideal combination for those who participate in winter activities.
