This April I traveled to Northern Norway and the beautiful region of Senja. This is my first trip to Norway in about 30 years and the first time I have crossed the Arctic Circle. The area has a fantastic landscape and I hope my photos from this place will do it some justice.
I really wanted to visit Norway again after seeing a lot of fantastic photos on Instagram and travel videos on Youtube. In planning this trip I failed to realise that even in April Senja is covered in a thick layer of snow, so I couldn’t hike up the mountain slopes as i hoped. So, for most of the trip I drove around in a hired car and stopped whenever I spotted something worth a photo – and there was quite a lot even from the roads.
Event with all the snow and restricted access to many of the higher peaks I still felt there was plenty to experience and photography. The mountains and fjords presented a unique landscape that is well worth the trip to this remote corner of the world… and they have plenty of tasty salmon fished locally.
I hope to go back some day during summer and climb the Hesten mountain peak.
