tæt på Skrollsvika, Troms (Norge)

4½-day hike from Skrollsvik to Lysnes, crossing Senja from the southwest to the northeast. Skrollsvik can be reached by speedboat from Harstad and from Lysnes there are speedboats to Tromsø. Check www.tromskortet.no for timetables.

Terrain: Skrollsvik – Å: low-traffic asphalt-road (for me, 3 cars in 90 minutes). Å – Storbunkevatnet, partly trail, partly track, partly cross-country. Storbunkevatnet – Lysvatnet: marked trail. Lysvatnet – Lysbotn: partly track, partly cross-country. Lysbotn – Lysnes: low-traffic asphalt road.

Most of the route is easy. I hiked in late August, for me the river crossings were easy, but earlier in summer they might require wading. In some places markings are poor and I took my own way, in other places the map is incorrect. I found the climb out of Tverrdalen/Doaresvággi (near Kapervatnet) towards Istind/Jieņas quite steep. The northern half is easier than the southern half.

Day 3, break 1, Ånderelva river crossing

Short stop after crossing Ånderelva. I took the marked route, which crosses the river about 1 km downstream compared to the route as drawn on Turkart Senja Sør. I don't know how the river crossing is at the place as it is marked on the map.
