Senja, Norway's second-largest island, rivals Lofoten and Vesterålen for natural beauty yet attracts a fraction of the visitors (we meandered the length of its northern coastline in the height of summer and saw very few vehicles). It's an island that warrants patient exploration, and at least two full days to fully appreciate its quiet beauty.
