Fjordbotn Camping is beautifully situated at the head of the Stønnesbotn Fjord on the north side of the island of Senja. We are just 10 minutes away from the Botnhamn-Brensholmen ferry crossing and 1 hour and 20 minutes away from the Gryllefjord-Andenes ferry crossing. Lysnes is only 5 minutes away, with express boat connections to Tromsø.
Fjordbotn Camping has 35 beds spread across 7 cabins. There are 40 power points for caravans and motorhomes, and a separate area for those who prefer to camp in tents. Bathroom facilities with WC/shower, a laundry room, kitchen, and a lounge for guests are all available. There is also a separate playground for little ones. A Café/Kiosk is also on site.
Fjordbotn Camping is the perfect base for excursions around Senja. If you want to visit well-known fishing villages like Husøy, Botnhamn, Fjordgård, and Senjahopen/Mefjordvær, these are all no more than 30 minutes drive away. If you are looking for activities like mountain walking or climbing, freshwater or salt-water fishing, then these are all available within a stone’s throw of the campsite.
Senja is rapidly growing as an Eldorado for ski-enthusiasts. With hundreds of mountain-tops for every skill-level, it is possible for most people to discover the joys of skiing. Not to speak of the freshness and the amazing powder snow. Skiing season lasts well into early summer, May, or even June.
Aurora Borealis, or the northern light, is another breathtaking experience you can enjoy on Senja. Far from city lights, Senja is the perfect place to discover this true magic. Aurora season is from late September, and all winter through, until April.
