Hiking & biking

Hiking:

The Senja region offers extraordinary hiking opportunities for all levels! Go to Fjordgård for a hike up the iconic mountain Segla. If you want a challenge, set your sights on reaching the summit of Sukkertoppen. If you prefer an easier hike, Husfjellet is a good alternative. In Ånderdalen National Park, you will find several marked hiking trails and picnic areas. Feel the sand between your toes on the beach in Bøvær or take a refreshing dip in the cold, turquoise sea. A visit to the magnificent and lush island of Dyrøy, located between Senja and the mainland, is also a must. The best hiking experiences here include Børringen and Dyrøygommen.

Plan well and take precautions. Read more on www.varsom.no.

Biking:

Bring your bike and ride along the National Scenic Route. The spectacular viewpoints and dramatic mountains rising directly from the sea mean a high Instagram factor is guaranteed. Take a break at the rest area by Tungeneset and enjoy the view of the Okshornan mountain range. A photo stop at the viewpoint in Bergsbotn is a must. When you reach Ersfjorden, you can experience the dramatic and pointed mountains known locally as “the Devil’s Jaw”. If you need a toilet break along the way, then the gold-plated public toilet at the beach Ersfjordstranda is an attraction in itself.
