OUR RICH HISTORY
Hamn i Senja has been called "Hamn" or "Havn" (which also means "port") since the early 1600s. In the summer of 1869, Eilert Brox found nickel ore on his farm and the Englishman Henry Hussey Vivian then built the Senja nickel mine. During this period, about 650 people lived in Hamn, compared to less than 10 today.
In 1994, the old buildings were renovated and turned into an intimate vacation resort with 12 apartments and a small restaurant. Times had changed, and suddenly people came from all over the country, and also from all over the world, to visit the new Hamn. After only one year in business, Hamn became Norway's Product of the Year - an award given to travel companies for developing well-organized activity packages. In September 2005 a fire destroyed all buildings but the owner family decided to rebuild everything and after almost 3 years, Hamn was finally able to open its doors to guests once again! Today you can still feel the pleasant, peaceful and maritime atmosphere and a perfect base for many activities in the surrounding area.
