About the Segla hike

Segla is an iconic mountain peak on Senja and one of the most popular hiking destinations. The trail begins in Fjordgård and ascends 639 meters in elevation. As Segla is such a well-loved hiking spot, the trail can be quite worn down, especially with loose sand and small stones on the final stretch. There are also steep sections on the way to the top, so hikers should be experienced and physically active to tackle Segla.

The view from the summit encompasses the magnificent mountains in the area, along with the fjords and the Norwegian Sea. The peak is an ideal location to witness the midnight sun and evening sun during the summer. However, the hike is equally charming in late autumn when the mountains are shrouded in low-lying fog, creating excellent photo opportunities for those interested.

Segla’s distinct profile and captivating vistas make it an unforgettable experience for hikers, and it’s easy to understand why it’s a favorite among those who visit Senja. With a little effort and the right level of fitness and experience, you’ll be rewarded with one of the most breathtaking views of Senja’s rugged landscape, making the hike well worth the effort.

You are always responsible for making your own judgments when venturing into the mountains, taking the current conditions into account. It’s crucial to ensure you have appropriate footwear for the conditions and that you bring an adequate supply of food and water for your journey.

It is also important to check the local weather forecast in advance.
