The winter in Lyngen

The Lyngen Alps are known for their sharp peaks and free-riding down-hill skiing tracks: almost every skier’s biggest dream! But Lyngen has more to offer during the winter!

The winter at Lyngen is full of outdoor adventures. Every outdoor activity you have ever dreamed of, is possible in Lyngen! “Every now and then, I get to see whales”, says Alf smiling while showing us a video of multiple killer whales swimming around his boat in late November.

Also, the Northern lights are very popular. Since Lyngen lays in a so-called ´Northern lights belt´, the lights can often be seen. "You only have to look up", says Alf.

Other winter activities in Lyngen

Whilst ski-touring through the Lyngen alps is by far the most popular activity to do, experiences like cross-country skiing, snowshoe hiking and dogsledding should not be forgotten.

The midnight sun in Lyngen

The midnight sun causes Lyngen to bath in sunlight up to 24 hours a day during the summer. These hikes are even more magical than they already were with the sun high up in the sky. Also, collect your dinner on the way!
