Located on the northern coast of Norway, Senja is an island of incredible beauty and is the country's second largest island after Spitsbergen. It is home to wonderfully diverse and scenic landscapes including fjords, mountains and a picturesque coastline.

Senja charms visitors all year round with its stunning scenery, but summer, with its almost endless days, is a wonderful time to travel, and as well as allowing you to witness the scale and the beauty of the island in full, it offers an opportunity for you to potentially witness the magic of the Midnight Sun.

With the trip being self-drive you have the flexibility to explore the island at leisure and enjoy the freedom that a car provides.

Your base is the charming Hamn i Senja, a beautiful harbour-side hotel where you will stay in modern and comfortable suites. The hotel restaurant serves delicious Norwegian cuisine and you will have easy access to its facilities and additional activities which you can book in advance or locally.

Inclusive activities such as a guided hike in the mountainous scenery and a wonderful boat sightseeing tour taking in the dramatic beauty of the fjords are not to be missed. Hopefully, you will see some of the wildlife that makes this island their home including sea eagles and whales.

We are delighted to be able to offer Senja as a summer experience as it is one of the most beautiful regions we have visited. It is the perfect spot to enjoy some exciting activities as well as plenty of time to relax and soak up the scenery.

We can also arrange activities such as dog sledding from Tromsø if you would like to continue your adventures. Please contact our travel experts who will create a quotation for you.


Other options

  • Body rafting in a Maelstrom

    From: £116pp

    During your time at Senja, you can choose to add a fun body rafting experience. A short distance from the hotel is an ocean inlet which creates a maelstrom. This is a powerful swirling body of water which occurs around four times a day as the tide shifts and can reach speeds of up to 7 knots. On this activity, you will get the chance to ride the tide from the insulated comfort of your float suit!

    Read more about this activity

    You will float along with the stream and experience the exciting magical power of the water and enjoy the beautiful scenery. The guides will take you there and back in a boat and there will be a guide with a diving suit in the water with you. You will be in the water for around an hour and a half in total. This tour requires a minimum of four participants in total and so availability will be confirmed at the time of booking.

  • Oudoor hot tub/sauna

    From: £32pp

    We have included one visit to the hotel’s sauna and wonderful outdoor hot tub. The hot tub is made from an old renovated fishing boat and is located just a few steps from the reception building. It is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy your stunning surroundings and make the most of the long daylight hours this beautiful location enjoys during the summer months. If you would like to book an additional visit to the hot tub please contact our travel experts for more information.

We include more, no hidden costs

On each of our holidays you will see a clear outline of exactly what's included in the price of your holiday. We never use 'headline' or 'lead-in' prices like so many tour operators, as we prefer to include as much as we can, rather than see our clients incur considerable additional costs in our destinations.

Holiday group size (approximate)

Approximately 2 – 24 people

Group sizes
Most of our holidays require a minimum number of participants to operate. Minimum numbers are detailed on each holiday page and are always approximate. Group sizes for tailor made holidays will vary for each of the activities. For private departures you may also be joined by other guests during the activities unless you have discussed specific private activities with us.

If your selected date has not yet reached minimum numbers you will be informed at the time of booking. In the unlikely event that your chosen date has not reached the required minimum numbers nine weeks before your scheduled departure date we will contact you and discuss the various options available to you. We will always do all we can to operate a holiday and in some cases we may be able to operate the holiday by combining your itinerary with that of other guests for some activities (this may mean that the maximum group size is increased but this will be discussed in full with you).

If we are unable to operate the holiday then you will be offered the chance to transfer to an alternative holiday or date (subject to availability). If the alternative is more expensive you will be asked to pay the difference, if it is cheaper then you will be reimbursed. You will also be offered the option to cancel and receive a full refund of all monies paid.

Minimum age

Whilst Artisan Travel only sells holidays to those aged 18 years and over on a small selection of holidays there may be those under the age of 18 who have booked with other companies and where our local supplier also allow those under 18 to participate (additional activities during tailor made holidays for example). Our travel experts will answer any concerns you may have in this regard.

Medical History and advice

You must inform us at the time of booking if any of your party has a disability, medical or behavioural conditions which could affect their own participation in the holiday or indeed that of the other people on the holiday.

We cannot be held responsible for any incident or event arising from your failure to do so.

Experience and fitness

Any activities included in your itinerary are all designed for beginners. Full instruction and tuition is provided for all activities and you do not need to have any previous experience. For example you need never have set foot on a pair of skis of any kind before a cross-country ski tour. We have adults of all ages and fitness levels taking part in our holidays.

We do highlight certain itineraries where an increased level of fitness is required.If you have any questions at all with regards to fitness levels please get in touch and talk to one of our experts. You can find further details in our trip preparation section online. You must inform us at the time of booking if any of your party has a disability, medical or behavioural conditions which could affect their own participation in the holiday or indeed that of the other people on the holiday.

Guides and safety
It is absolutely essential when partaking in any activity that you listen very closely to, and abide by, the instructions provided. Nobody knows the environment better than our activity providers who work here almost everyday.

Consequently, their knowledge and experience is unsurpassed. If there is anything that you are unsure of during a safety briefing or that you would like to clarify with the guides please make this clear to them immediately before starting the activity.

There may be rare occasions when our guides consider local conditions unsuitable for a certain activity. Hence, your itinerary may be subject to change at short notice but we will always endeavour to firstly find a replacement on the day and secondly, to provide the cancelled activity later in your stay whenever possible. Very occasionally it proves impossible to provide the activity in which case you will be refunded when you return home.

Our guides' word on activities is always final and your safety is their principal concern at all times, please respect their decisions. By following their instructions, your safety and enjoyment during each activity will be greatly enhanced.

You must inform us of any medical conditions that may affect your participation in an activity at the time of booking.

Booking activities locally
In almost all of our destinations you can book and pay for additional activities locally. Please note that we cannot be held responsible for any injury or loss that occurs through any activities that are booked in your destination (see our terms and conditions for further details).

Please always ensure that your safety is your primary concern when arranging any such activity.
