Senja Fjordhotell and Frovåg Havfiske are part of Frovågbrygga AS, which is owned and operated by Berit and Charles Wilsgård Olsen.
We started our business in 2009 by offering accommodation and boat rental to tourists who mainly came to Frovåg to fish in the sea. The response from the tourists who came here was extremely positive, and we soon saw that we did not have enough space to keep up with the demand from the tourists.
Owing to the great demand, we have gradually expanded from renting out one house and a boat at the start to now renting out two charming houses, three waterfront fishermen’s cottages and operating a wonderful hotel!
We decided to build the hotel to enable us to accommodate tourists during the winter season as in time demand has grown rapidly during this season too. Initially we discussed the idea of having a small building to serve meals, but this gradually evolved into a hotel. The location is perfect since the hotel is centrally located in South Senja with all the arms of the fjords that lead to the small, charming villages in the area.
A good concept
Our concept of Senja Fjordhotell and Frovåg Havfiske is good one for several reasons. The location is perfect since the hotel is centrally located in South Senja with all the arms of the fjords that lead to the small, charming villages in the area.
Moreover, Frovåg is sheltered in peaceful surroundings with beautiful nature right outside our window. There are nature-based activities for people of all ages virtually on our doorstep, such as fishing, mountain hiking, swimming, cross-county skiing and ski touring
Good cooperation with partners
To achieve a viable tourism sector in Senja, we believe in good cooperation between the parties in the travel industry!
As hosts, we want to be able to provide activities to our guests year-round. It’s important for us that our guests feel well taken care of and that everything goes smoothly for them. Consequently, we gladly assist with transport when our guests require this. Furthermore, we live near the resort, which makes it easy to contact if the guests require assistance.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you want us to customize a package for you, your family, friends or company!
We look forward to welcoming you, so you can experience Senja at its best!
Berit and Charles
