PICTURES from LYNGEN
Lyngen is an Arctic Eldorado, with the Lyngenfjord to the east and Ullsfjord to the west. The majestic and breathtaking Lyngen Alps dominate this part of Lyngen where arctic fjord meets alpine mountain.

 Lyngen  
Lyngen The administrative centre of the municipality is the village of Lyngseidet. Other villages include Furuflaten, which has various industries, and Svensby. Nord-Lenangen faces the open sea, and is largely a fishing village.

The Lyngen Alps range begins in the north with Storgalten and stretches south in an unending chain of jagged peaks, pinnacles and mighty glaciers. The cold, clean arctic ocean, rich in fish, cuts in to the mountains in a series of spectacular fjords. You can enjoy the scenic splendour of Lyngen in winter as well as summer.
