“An unforgettable excursion”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2014

A visit to Lyngen Alps is must if you are around Tromso and if it s winter. The mountains have that fairytale snow landscapes. I joined a tour and did snowshoeing which is a type of trekking in snowy and icy mountains. It was a joyful day and I am glad that i have been there once in my life time.

“Great Off Piste Skiing & Northern Lights Viewing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2013

The Lyngen Alps are a beautiful mountain range in northern Norway. Known for exceptional off piste skiing every year from February to April. Also worth a visit from November to January for Northern Lights viewing.

“Good Christmas feel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

Very nice surrounding here and the snow-covered mountains present a view that reminds us of the Christmas cards we used to send around, presenting a wintry feel. The alps here presents good walking opportunities but the weather now (mid-October) is a bit too early for good dog sledding. We had a nice view of the alsp when we took a ferry from Breivikeidet to Svensby.

“Fantastic views and good skiing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

The mountains are so close and there are many of them.

Sometimes it's hard to climb to the top of the mountain, because there are no lifts. So please prepare yourself

“Scenic overload”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

The most dramatic scenery we have ever seen. With blue skies and snow covered mountains sweeping into the fjords, just breathtaking!
