A walking tour will be part of our first day in Oslo, and evening yoga will help us adjust to the time change. We will continue to explore Oslo on the second day and enjoy morning and evening yoga.
On day 3, we leave for the magical, fairy island of Senja with it’s breathtaking views and some of the most dramatic fjord scenery in Norway. We may even see porpoises playing in the crystal clear waters. The natural beauty, changing Arctic light, stillness and quiet on Senja will bring you home to yourself.
On Senja Island, our home will be the Mefjord Brygge, a traditional Norwegian resort located between the mountains and fjords in Northern Norway. It is the perfect place from which to explore Senja. We will enjoy outdoor activities of all kinds, plus an outdoor wood-fired hot tub, sauna and — yoga, yoga nidra and (fingers crossed) the Northern Lights.
