BOTNHAMN - A HIDDEN PEARL IN THE WORLD

My first footsteps were taken here in this small fishing village far away up in the north.
I grew up here with my grandparents and had a jolly good and protected life from all the dangers in the world.

A small population is living here - around 470 people, some horses and a few cats.
The people are spread out from the bottom of Stønnesbotn to the road end at Laukvik. A distance of 15-20 km.

You find Botnhamn on the island of Senja.
Senja is an Island with many views. All from high mountains to beautiful beaches.

To get a better look at the spectacular place Botnhamn and Senja are, take a look at www.botnhamn.com and www.visitsenja.no

Silence

Nothing but silence. It is so quiet at times that you can hear cow on the other side of the fjord moooing...

If you are lucky in the middle of the night some strange animals can swim right in front of you. We have small whales and oters (long black furry thing)

And if you are even more lucky the sun will shine all night long.

Colours

Never was the blue so blue as here, never was the pink so pink as here, never was the green as green as here.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Quiet, beautiful, exiting, adventures is waiting for you - you just have to get there first
  • Cons:Far away, little to do if you look for that kind of nightlife
  • In a nutshell:Just a tiny little place with lots of space

    I certainly would enjoy to be "trapped" in Botnhamm, and look at the midnight sun. It looks beautiful there. Best, from here.
