Looking for the ultimate Arctic experience? Get your heart racing with hypnotic and dramatic landscapes, develop your chi with some Arctic yoga or set your imagination on fire with spectacular sightings of the Northern Lights.
Tucked up in the far north of Norway, Lyngen Lodge is a cosy, self contained, one-stop destination, an ideal base for your summer and winter Arctic adventures. Built from pine logs, the lodge works in partnership with the environment, as the eight en suite bedrooms are kept cosy and warm with geothermal heating during winter.
After a day’s adventure delving into the mysteries and beauty of the Arctic, a roaring open fire of the dining area draws guests together to enjoy world-class cuisine, including reindeer stew, fresh fish from the fjord, local lamb and many other succulent surprises. In the summer the edge of the fjord is just meters away where the lodge’s own boat is ready for whale watching and fishing trips.
