Senja, and especially the north of Senja, is known for their amazing mountains. You can find trips suitable for all, if you are just chilling or you are an experienced mountain hiker. Most of the trails are well marked. With around 50 tops over 750 meters, Senja is a paradise for summit hikes. Mountain hikes in Senja are just as beautiful in the summer as the winter. Experience the green mountains plunge down in the blue ocean, or see the snow-capped peaks. You have the time for both two and three summit hikes in one day, which makes the island an eldorado for hikes. If you are not known in the area we recommend bringing a guide. When you get a guide you also get local knowledge about the most beautiful places. Famous mountain peaks like Breitinden, Segla, Keipen and Barden all start just a few miles from Fjordbotn Camping.
