Our Stay at Hamn i Senja in Norway

In September Joel and I went on a trip to Norway for about 10 days. Today’s post is the second in a series of posts about our trip and our stay at the Hamn i Senja resort which is located on the island of Senja in northern Norway.

Our first stop in Norway was in the Lofoten Islands and for 4 nights we stayed at the Eliassen Rorbuer in Hamnøy. You can read my post about our stay in Hamnøy HERE.

The second part of our Norway trip we spent two nights in Senja and we stayed at the Hamn i Senja resort. We drove about 6 hours north Hamnøy  to get to Senja. It was a beautiful drive!

The Hamn i Senja is a resort right on the water. There are cottages, a conference facility and a lighthouse. This area is very sparsely populated so to find this beautiful resort there was fantastic. Definitely a great vacation destination especially if you live in Europe.

Since it is right on the water you can enjoy kayaking and boating in the summertime. We were there mid September and we spent the whole morning out on the water. It was really, really cold though.  It is the Arctic, so I guess that is about right lol.  When we got back to our cabin we drank lots of tea to warm up!

The cabin suites were perfect size and looked right out onto the water. Ours had a deck, too. Our suite had a kitchen and a very comfy bed. In Scandinavia the beds are made with two duvets which I found interesting. Each person gets their own. No sharing needed lol.

Once again we were able to catch the Aurora Borealis. I was so lucky to see it so much on this trip. I will never forget these nights.  You can check out Soft Serve News to track where the Aurora will be. Thanks to Joel for this tip.

If you are in Senja you must take the hike to Mt. Segla. It is a short, steep hike and it takes about an hour. It is so beautiful!!
