Senja Island, Norway 2018

Senja Island, Norway 2018

     On July 6th, 2018 I flew into Narvik, Norway,  rented a car and drove North to Senja Island.

     The nature on the island of Senja is like a cross-section of Norwegian nature – a Norway in miniature. On the “inner coast” and in the south, I discovered a gentle landscape with marshland, pine forests and forested hillsides. When I crossed Senja towards the west and north, the landscape rose through mountain birch forests, crossing tree-less mountains and barren, high mountains before it dropped suddenly down toward the open sea of the “outer coast”.

     After driving northwest around the point of Steinfjord, I found the next northern fjord called Ersfjord.  Below is an image taken Northwest at Ersfjord towards the “Devil’s Teeth”.
