After a delicious breakfast overlooking the Lyngenfjord, embark on a snowmobile adventure through snow-covered birch tree forests to a frozen lake. Here drill holes in the ice and try your hand at ice-fishing for mountain trout. The ice is so thick that it is possible to make a fire on the ice and cook the fresh fish directly at the camp. The views over the Lyngen Alps are spectacular and you can explore the surrounding area by snowmobile in-between fishing sessions. Return to the lodge for afternoon tea and spend the evening at leisure. (B,L,D)
