Deep within the Arctic Circle is the tranquil Lyngenfjord – an appropriately named place, given that it originates from the word ‘logn’ which means ‘quiet’ or ‘still’. Meeting its shores are the grand slopes of the Lyngen Alps, an untouched mountain range, with peaks which tower 1500 metres above the waters of the fjord. This combination ensures some staggeringly beautiful scenery which is complemented even further by glaciers, beautiful mountain lakes and deep gorges.
Given its positioning, 300km inside the Arctic Circle, this region is an ideal location from which to seek out dazzling displays of the Aurora Borealis, which are seen frequently here when the conditions are right.
Your chances are further improved with our trips here which include activities specifically designed for hunting the Northern Lights.
