What You’ll Do

Together with BaseCamp Senja, you’ll gear up for a relaxing and memorable cruise on the Bergsfjord to watch the Midnight Sun, view cultural monuments, and spot wildlife. The midnight sun is a natural phenomenon in the summer, similar to the winter version, the Northern Lights, in that it takes place at both of earth’s poles.

There will be a strong breeze while on the stable rubber boat, so make sure you wear warm clothing. You can also warm up with the hot cocoa and cake that will be provided. After the picturesque tour, you’ll be returned to the meeting location.
