Hamn i Senja

Enjoy a stay in Hamn i Senja

Since 1994 the historical fishing station Hamn has been redeveloped and turned into an authentic resort. This unique location can be found on Norways second largest island, Senja. You can enjoy a vast range of outdoor activities and experience the beautiful nature, northern lights and midnight sun or simply relax in one of the picturesque accomodations. Hamn, which means harbour, has become more and more popular over the years and has even been named one of the 25 most beautiful places in Norway. Hamn i Senja is a must-see location which certainly matches the more popular Lofoten Islands. And despite the developments that have taken places over the years, they have managed to keep the calm, maritime atmosphere.
