Norwegian Scenic Route Senja runs from Gryllefjord to Botnhamn, with short detours to Mefjordvær and Husøy. The route is 102 km long (Road 86/862) and together with Norwegian Scenic Route Andøya it provides an outer alternative to Euroroute 6 and the Hurtigruten coastal express.

Since Senja is an island, to get there you must cross the bridge from the mainland (Euroroute 6 via Finnsnes) or take the ferry from Tromsø. The Senja and Andøya Scenic Routes are also linked by ferry. Detours to Husøya (Road 7886) and Mefjordvær (Road 7868) will allow you to experience the Norwegian Sea at close hand.

In combination with the Hurtigruten coastal express or ferries you can make a round trip of Senja, Andøya and Lofoten. In the summer season the ferry from Gryllefjord – Andenes links the Senja and Andøya Scenic Routes. The summer ferry from Botnhamn – Brensholmen can be your route from Senja to Tromsø.
