Tucked away in the remote Norwegian wilderness, on the edge of Lyngenfjord, the luxurious Lyngen Lodge is the ultimate winter escape.

At night, Lyngen Lodge offers uninterrupted views of the night sky, far from any light pollution making it an excellent place to watch for the magical northern lights, which frequently appear directly above the lodge.
Lyngen Lodge is a scenic, three hour journey overland from Tromsø, Norway's gateway to the Arctic. Northern Norway's vibrant capital offers exciting cruises on the fjord, many interesting museums and lots of excellent restaurants and pubs, making it an ideal place to consider extending your holiday for a night or two at the start of your adventure to the Arctic for the true northern Norwegian city and nature combination.
Fly to Tromsø and transfer to the luxurious Lyngen Lodge to check in for a four night stay. This boutique hideaway has just eight rooms and is located on beautiful Lyngenfjord offering views of the Lyngen Alps. In the evening, enjoy a northern lights presentation and learn some tips on how to photograph the lights and the wildlife that you may see during your stay. (D)
Start the day with a transfer by snowmobile (as a passenger) through snow-covered birch tree forests to a frozen lake. Snowshoe along the frozen lake and try your hand at ice-fishing for mountain trout. It is usually possible to make a fire right on the lake 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 and snowshoeing sessions. Return to the lodge for afternoon tea and spend the evening at leisure. (B,L,D)
