My husband and I, plus two friends, have recently returned from a six day ski touring holiday. From the moment we were collected from Tromso airport until the moment we were dropped back there we were looked after in a very professional yet friendly way. On arrival at the lodge we were greeted by one of the owners, Graham and other members of staff who introduced themselves by name; we were, in total, a group of twelve guests and the staff knew all our names before the first evening was over which was impressive. Our room was on the ground floor with a stunning view across the fjord. It was a double room with more than adquate storage space and a lovely en suite bathroom. Our skis remained outside the lodge and our ski boots plus any wet gear were put into a drying room by the front door. Breakfast was buffet style with a huge selection of bread, cheese, charcuterie, fruit juice etc on offer along with freshly, homemade bread. We were able to make our packed lunches each day from this selection. Dinner each night was a superb three course meal, beautifully presented and expertly cooked; dietary requirements were catered for without any fuss. There was also a very good selection of wines and each night we were told which wines would be best paired with each course. As far as the ski touring went we couldn't have asked for a better guide, Stefan. He was calm, professional, very patient and with a keen sense of humour! He was also incredibly knowledgeable about the area and Norway as a whole. He took us to areas of outstanding beauty where we had, for the most part, whole mountainsides to ourselves. We were taken by boat( expertly driven by Seamus), on two occasions to different islands giving us a mini cruise along the fjord and a different vista.It provided us with an experience unlike any other we have had before and we all agreed it was one that will stay in our memories for a very long time. So thanks to Graham, Veronica,E lizabeth and all the staff and we wish you continuing success and, who knows, we may come back again!

We stayed at the Lyngen Lodge in March and had the most wonderful time. We thought we may not be able to see the northern lights and by the time we were done with all of the activities, we didn't even mind. The dog sledding was the biggest highlight of the trip. The staff is incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. We have since recommended this lodge to everyone we know!

My husband and I booked the 4-day northern lights package at Lyngen Lodge and just left a few days ago. It was absolutely one of the most amazing experiences of my life. The lodge itself is just as gorgeous as in the photos, if not more so. We booked very early and requested a fjord view and got room #1 which has a private bathroom and a double bed. It was everything we could ask for. Comfortable bed, exceptionally clean, and enough room for what we needed it for (to sleep and store our stuff). The staff is incredible. Every morning there is a delicious breakfast buffet set out that you can eat at your leisure. Lunch is served while you are out on your daily activity. The salmon soup was REALLY GOOD! My husband loved it and I am going to try and duplicate the recipe for him. Every evening at 7:30 Alex cooks a 3-course dinner. I am pescetarian and informed the lodge of this prior to my arrival. There was never an issue and they had food available for me every day. Another couple at the lodge was being more difficult and changing their food order literally as entrees are being served and the staff went out of their way to accommodate them despite the last minute changes. Other than the one dessert with the pop rocks (which my husband gladly ate for me), all of the food was exceptional and I ate every bite. The activities are all really wonderful as well. The dog sledding was such a cool experience. The owner of the dogs was friendly and kind and our driver/guide (Sam) was a lot of fun. I saw some other reviews complaining about the amount of time sledding, but I thought it was just right. We spent about 20 minutes dog sledding up to camp, then sat around a fire with gorgeous views and ate some yummy soup (cauliflower for me, reindeer for everyone else). Then we sledded about 15-20 minutes back. Afterwards we got to play with the dogs for awhile which was also great fun. For the snow mobiles it is similar - about 15-20 minutes up to camp, then you take a snowshoe hike and eat lunch (salmon soup, mmmmm so good). Then you play around with the snowmobiles on a track at the top of the mountain before riding another 15-20 minutes back. The scenery is amazing. Our guide for the day was Martin and he is an absolute gem. He seems so happy and kind and was a pleasure to be around. The final day activities are varied and we chose the sea safari. This was the only activity the mildly disappointed me as it has a significant extra cost attached (about $180 US each). We did get to go across the fjord and see the mountain up close (they were spectacular!). One of the other guests is an avid fisherman, so Graham (the owner of the lodge and guide for the day) found an area with some fish so she could try her hand at fishing for a little while. We then went to an island and got a tour of where they dry cod, which was fascinating. I suppose I was mildly disappointed because we did not go to the area where there are allegedly tons of whales and I was so hoping to see some. Nature is nature though. The guests who did not choose the sea safari took a ferry to a beach for a walk and then visited the same island we went to. Graham, one of the owners, was so wonderful. He went so out of his way to accommodate people. After the snowmobiling a group wanted to cross country ski, so he set up an afternoon activity just for them. Also on the last day some people who had never cross country skied wanted to try it, so he went behind the lodge and set up a course for them and gave them all lessons. I didn't go because I was exhausted, so I took a nap, but they all had a blast and talked about it at dinner. He also spent one night just sitting in the room near the fire chatting with everyone until almost midnight. We were so fortunate too, we got to see the lights during only one night of our trip. The entire time the weather was very snowy and rainy, but it cleared up for one night and the lights gave us a show off an on from around 7pm until 2am! They might have gone on later, but that's when my husband and I finally went to sleep. Overall, I could not have been much happier with our experience at Lyngen Lodge. If I had unlimited money, I would make a yearly trip there! It is 100000% worth every cent we paid. Thank you to Graham and the rest of the staff for making our bucket list trip so much better than we ever anticipated it could be!

We made our reservations here early in the year, after researching the best places to see the Northern Lights. Right on cue, we had a spectacular display the first night we arrived. Despite clouds and snow, there were views each of the three nights. From planning, thru the entire stay, everything was exceptional. Elisabeth and her team managed our transfer from Tromso flawlessly. The lodge itself is gorgeous - well thought out for the purposes it serves. The rooms had plenty of storage, comfortable beds, windows that opened to let in the cool night air, and a wonderful shower. Meals, served family style, were prepared by their culinary team, who had no problem adapting to individual dietary restrictions. A full breakfast and a three-course dinner were provided every night. During the day, we had great lunches (reindeer stew one day and salmon soup the next, cooked by the guides or their friends) while on our daily adventures. Dog sledding was a blast, as was our snow mobile/snow shoe outing. Each afternoon, all of the guests gathered and got to know each other, which was one of the truly special parts of the trip. The last night the entire group gathered in the hut on the top of the hill behind the lodge for warm drinks and another view of the Northern Lights. We cannot say enough about the entire team at the Lodge - drivers, chefs, guides, and owners - all were friendly, informative, and professional. If you want to see the Northern Lights, fly to Tromso (maybe spend a night or two in that picturesque little city) and then head to Lyngen Lodge. You will not go wrong.

Many thanks for taking the time to share your positive experience on-line. It was a pleasure to host you during your stay with us and of course extremely pleased that the Northern Lights appeared on cue and the whole lodge staff made you feel at home. We hope to be able to host you again perhaps during another season here in the Arctic north. Warmest of wishes from the whole team.

Truly memorable experience. Cannot praise highly enough the staff, accommodation, food and organised trips. Many thanks to all involved at Lyngen Lodge. A very special place. The journey from Tromso to reach the lodge is 2.5 hours but we enjoyed the 2 short ferry crossings and drive as we saw moose and porpoise on route. Setting by Lyngen Fjord and Lyngen Alps is stunning. Do come prepared for all weather conditions though as this can change quite quickly.
