Senja island was truly love at first sight. Not only was I hosted by a Norwegian family in a small fishing village, but the scenery itself was simply amazing.
The south has more valleys, whilst the more touristy northeast focuses on the sharp peaks that plunge straight into the sea, like in Tunggeneset or even the fjords, with Bergsfjord being the most famous. Hiking enthusiasts won't be disappointed, as the Senja på langs trail crosses most of the island in 5 days. I recommend it, because it's a unique and extraordinary experience. Finally several museums offer you the chance to bring variety to your visit, such as the Senjamuseet, the Midt-Troms Museum and the Kaperdalen Sami Museum.
Truthfully, I strongly recommend Senja island for its variety, and in my opinion it's a must during any trip to Norway.
