Senja, Norway

It's been way too long since the last blog post! I hope you follow us on Instagram, so you are somewhat aware of our lives and travels. 

I just got back from a road trip to Senja Island, which is the second biggest Insland in Norway. It's located north from the Lofoten Islands. Senja looks very much like Lofoten Islands and it has similar steep mountains rising from the sea as well, so it's also very photogenic. Senja is a lot less known destination compared to Lofoten Islands, which makes it an attractive place to visit.

We just wanted to scout Senja out and we didn't really do any specific plans for out trip. We knew the layout of the place and some basic tourist sites to visit. It's not the most common time of the year to visit the place, so we didn't really meet any other tourists during our trip. One local Instagrammer was kind enough to have us in his apartment, so that we didn't have to rent a cabin. Also he was a nice guide for us!

We were lucky as there had been a snowfall before our trip and the mountains looked nice with a fresh layer of snow. Here are some photos from our trip through Finland to Norway and back!
