Our concept provides all transport from the airport to the lodge and during all activities, this releases you from the stresses of driving yourself on thick ice covered Arctic roads that require extensive winter driving experience.
The main airport is located in Tromsø and you will be greeted by a Lyngen Lodge host and driver at the arrival terminal. From here you will be driven to the lodge, passing through en route the dramatic scenery of the Lyngen Alps National Park.
The manager and hostess team will meet you upon arrival. Here you will swap your outdoor shoes for cosy lodge hand made slippers and your relaxation will begin here. After you have settled into your room you’ll receive a welcome drink, Northern Light presentation and a explanation of how the activity days and program ahead will run.
Your three course meal will be served in the evening with enough time for you to later enjoy the possibility of seeing the Aurora in the night sky directly from the lodge.
The following days will proceed with a hearty breakfast and the day’s chosen activity will commence mid morning. You will be provided a suit, hat and gloves that will be yours for the duration of your visit. These clothes are best used for all activities, whether dog sledding, sea safari or snow shoeing.
Our main activities which are dog sledding, snow mobiles and ice fishing, sea safari and snow shoeing take place during the time of day when we have some light in the sky. The Northern Lights are then mainly viewed at the lodge from late afternoon or evening. We can combine Northern Light night sessions with snow shoeing and hiking to the mountain hut during the evening after the main activities have taken place. If conditions are good then snow mobiles can be used in the night time also.
At around 7pm your three course meal will be served and when the Northern Lights make an appearance you can easily hop outside on the heated terrace to view the Aurora Borealis in full comfort.
Our hosts and hostesses are permanently on hand to offer tips and tricks for Northern Light photography during the evenings.
Please tell us when you are wanting to visit and we will advise on availability.
