Senja Guided Hiking Tour

Enjoy the view of Segla
Located in the far north of Norway, above the Arctic Circle, you'll find the island of Senja, in Troms County. This is the second-largest island in the country and is known for its untamed natural beauty. You find it in the coastal mountains dominating the North Atlantic, and in the green birch forests of the interior. Activities here include everything from fishing and kayaking to dog-sledding under the northern lights. Due to its remoteness and vast mountain peaks, Senja is also a great hiking destination.

This is a guided hiking excursion along local trails little-visited by outsiders. There are hikes here that are ideal for all ages and difficulty levels, so you needn't worry about lack of experience. One example is a path up to an alternate view of the iconic peak Segla via a trail to neighboring Hesten along the southern side of the mountain. This trail is quite steep, so wear good hiking shoes and stay to the right as you ascend. At the top, there are wonderful views of the Mefjord, Øyfjord, and the surrounding mountains, while standing on the sheer cliff offers a rush of adrenaline to anyone brave enough to peer over the edge. Keep an eye out for Breidtinden, Senja's highest mountain, to the south.
