Lyngen Lodge - Northern Lights

Register for January 2018 now! Book early to avoid disappointment. Experience the magic of Lyngen Lodge and the gorgeous scenery of the Lyngen Fjord.

Overview

Far inside the Arctic Circle in the heart of the Northern Norwegian Fjords there is something quite special. Lyngen Lodge offers a touch of luxury on the Lyngen Fjord. ‘Small scale’ and ‘genuine’ are key phases here. With just 8 rooms and a warming real log fire there is a very relaxed and informal atmosphere. This is a place to relax, escape and take a well earned break from our modern chaotic world.

There is a jacuzzi on the terrace, with views across the Lyngen fjord and a traditional Scandinavian sauna. Make the most of your stay by choosing some of the local activities and experience life in this magical part of Norway. You don’t have to go far to see the Northern Lights. The chances are they are in the sky directly above your head!

Like many of our holidays we tailor make and Lyngen Lodge is no different. We recommend a night or two in Tromso at the beginning of end of your stay and as Tromso is the main transport hub in northern Norway we can add almost all of our holidays in Northern Norway to a holiday at Lyngen Lodge.
