This Holiday in a nutshell
  • self-guided, three-centre walking holiday
  • ‘Norway in miniature’
  • mountains, moorland and pristine sandy beaches
  • incomparable viewpoints
  • tranquil quayside hotels in historic fishing villages


Although well known for its mountains, fjords, islands and convoluted coastline, Arctic Norway still has a few surprises – and little-visited gems – up its sleeve. Senja, second largest of the country’s islands and a little farther north, even, than the justly popular Lofotens, is certainly one of these – relatively little-known, yet full of extraordinary natural beauty.

Senja, Norway's second-largest island, rivals Lofoten and Vesterålen for natural beauty yet attracts a fraction of the visitors. It's an island that warrants patient exploration… to fully appreciate its quiet beauty.
Lonely Planet

Senja’s wild north-western coast, accentuated by peaks which soar skywards from secluded sandy bays, is balanced by the gentle terrain of the sheltered eastern side of the island; and by the lakes, forests and high moorland in between. On this holiday, you are treated to superb walking with breathtaking views, while being based at some charming waterside locations.
