About Husøy

The gorgeous islet of Husøy sits in Øyfjord and is connected to Senja by a short causeway.

Husøy is home to around 300 people and is Senja’s most active fishing community. 

Getting there

Husøy lies at the northern end of road Fv277, just 15km from Botnhamn. The road to Husøy forms part of Norwegian Scenic Route Senja.

Park your car at the entrance to the island and explore on foot. 


There is a small Joker grocery store and petrol pumps at the entrance to the island.
