Winter adventures in the Lyngen Alps

SHALL WE GO AND PACK?

Whales, adrenaline and the Northern lights

The northern lights dazzle across the sky, giant whales leap from slate grey waters and husky dogs bark with enthusiasm as they run through the crisp countryside, all with you along for the ride. The Lyngen alps in Northern Norway are the adventure seekers playground, everything is larger than life and so close, you can almost reach out and touch it.

ITINERARY

WHAT, WHERE & WHEN

Day 1

Welcome to northern Norway and to Tromso, the gateway to the Lyngen Alps. Your arctic adventure starts with a scenic 2 hour road transfer (including a ferry crossing) through mountain lined valleys and sea hugging coastal roads. Your destination is Lyngen Experience Lodge, which lies nestled between the ocean and the mountains, enjoying panoramic views of the Ulsfjord. This unique lodge provides the ideal setting for experiencing the Norwegian wilderness and arctic environment. Modern welcoming rooms and high quality tasty food at every meal, blend with memory filled days. Your first evening is an opportunity to see something truly special, the Northern lights. Depending on the conditions you will either walk or snowshoe out to a remote teepee in the woods. Located in an area of high Aurora borealis activity, it is the ideal place to admire this delight of nature. Your guide will build a bonfire and, if conditions are right, you will be treated to an amazing display of dancing lights across the night sky. Your guide will offer advice on how to get those memorable photographs.

Day 2

Start your day with a hearty breakfast and delight in the events of the previous evening, before heading off for a true arctic activity, dog sledding. 2 persons share a sled and a pack of 4-6 dogs will pull you over the varied terrain through the beautiful surrounding countryside. There is no better feeling than listening to the sound of the runners and the padding of husky paws as the run across snow covered trails. There will be time to swap over and take turns driving. The dogs love to run and they love a hug at the end of the trip even more. Spend the rest of the day relaxing in the sauna or the outdoor hot tub. If you are feeling really hardy you can take a quick dip in the fjord, right off the shore.

Day 3

From the beginning of November to the middle of January, the giants of the sea appear in the fjords of Northern Norway to feed on the shoals of fish that swim in these waters. Today you will go on the hunt to observe the whales in their natural environment. Your captain will use his knowledge of the area and scan the surface for breaching whales, attempting to get you as close as possible to these magnificent creatures. The journey passes through an area of spectacular natural beauty with snow covered peaks and soaring cliffs. Once the whales have moved on for another year it is possible to substitute this safari for a snowmobile trip into the Lyngen Alps.

Day 4

Your adventure to the frozen north comes to an end today but it doesn’t have too. Magnetic North can add extra nights to your stay and amazing experiences such as Ice climbing, reindeer sledding, snowshoeing and more days means more opportunities to see the Northern lights.
