Arctic adventures all year around

From tall steep mountains to lush valleys, glaciers and narrow fjord arms, there is something for everyone to fall in love with. In addition to the Lyngen Alps, the region is home to the islands around Skjervøy, Reisa National Park, inland wilderness areas, lakes and rivers, and the northernmost three-country cairn in the world. 

Go for shorter day trips along the shore or into the valleys, or climb summits and glaciers. Challenge yourself with multi-day hikes into the inland wilderness. 

In the autumn and winter, you might be lucky enough to experience the magical northern lights. This time of year, humpback and killer whales also often appear. Spotting whales is a thrilling experience!

The region is home to an abundance of locally-sourced food and drink. Taste everything from Lyngen lamb to Lyngen prawns, as well as nature's bounty such as berries and mushrooms.

This cultural diversity between the three peoples, – the Norwegians, the Sami, and the Kven is a part of everyday life here. This also forms the backdrop to local cultural highlights, such as the Centre for Northern people that celebrates the native sea Sami culture, and the annual Riddu Riđđu music festival.
