bull-horns

The Bull Horns, or Okshornan in Norwegian, is a mountain formation jutting out from the Senja Island coastline.  It is obvious that the mountains get their name from their shape as they are very sharp.  It looks like they are just one row but they are actually made up of layers and layers of rock.  This spot is a popular tourist destination as the view faces north, and with the Midnight Sun, you can witness a striking contrast of broody mountains against a yellow sky.

The ramp leads to a rocky end.  In Autumn the waves are a little more angry than usual so make sure you don’t get too close to the edge as freak waves are a regular occurrence.  This spot makes good for long exposures as the white water flows over the rocks.

For Tourists:
This place is a good pit-stop as it offers toilets in the middle of nowhere.  Down the ramp you’ll find a minimalist grill facing out to sea.  You will need to bring your own wood though.
