Far north of the Arctic Circle lies Senja, the fairytale island, where the majestic Northern Light and beautiful nature is located. Senja is Norway’s second largest island, close to Tromsø City and only five hours from spectacular Lofoten. 

You are welcomed by an impressive blend of sea, mountains and beaches. The coast of the island has sculptural mountains and colourful fishing villages in sheltered coves. The nature is full of contrasts depending on the season, with the midnight sun and the Northern Light.

Aurora Borealis Season

Mid August - Mid April EVERY YEAR we are lucky to enjoy the aurora

At the Aurora Borealis Observatory we can see the first auroras around mid August and the last in mid april. 

If Aurora is the most important bucket list item we recommend that you visit us from August 29th until April 15th. 

You should stay 4-7 days for better chances to see the northern lights. It is weather dependent.

Ps: It is impossible to say what is the best time or month to see the northern lights as this depends on the weather.

All months from September can be equally good, so we actually recommend that you plan your trip based on what suits you best.

Many people ask whether they should visit us with or without moonlight. This is subjective and we personally like both equally well

The Boat and forest-3

Late August - November

August to november are really amazing months for aurora. Combined with stunning sunset colors on the horizon. This period until December is "autumnal" months. Above all: This is a fantastic period, with a lot of northern lights. This is the aurora borealis holiday period normally without any snow and also the warmest period during aurora borealis season.

December - Mid March

December to mid-March are also amazing for aurora. This is the time when we have snow at the aurora borealis observatory. The period is colder and when you have a lot of snow, however the landscape is usually all white and pretty. With a lot of snow and cold weather, you can get ready to experience the winter wonderland. Enjoy your Aurora Borealis holiday during snowy months.

Let the Genie out

Mid March - Mid April

Mid March we return to the period with Northern Lights on top of fantastic sunset colors on the horizon. The period is characterized by cold weather but much brighter days, due to the fact that polar nights is over. As a result, we are probably fully booked 6 months prior. This is for many the ultimate period of photographing the aurora during the aurora borealis holiday
