Discover Norway, the beauty of the Arctic, and the wider country

Lyngen Lodge Logo

Norway is a country of extremes and contrasts, be it the descent from the heights of the Lyngen Alps to the low-lying beaches of the Lyngen fjord, or the change from the long dark nights of winter to the ever-shining sun during the magical summer months. These contrasts are certainly not limited to the area of the Lyngen Alps and northern Norway

though. To fully discover Norway, we encourage you to enrich your experience of Arctic and Lapland adventure with time spent visiting the rest of Norway, from the urban hubs to the stunning natural landscapes of the countryside on your own Norway adventures.

Norway takes on a whole different character in winter, and this is especially true north of the Arctic circle. The earth falls under a blanket of crisp white snow, whilst the skies fill with mesmerising colours and lightshows. Skiing, winter activities and other Arctic and Lapland adventures make this a truly memorable time of year to visit Norway.

Discover Northern Norway

Outside the larger settlements, the landscape of northern Norway offers many stunning areas to appreciate the power of nature. Lying entirely within the Arctic Circle, the regions of Troms and Finnmark are characterised by stark terrain, with bare mountains, ancient glaciers, and sparkling fjords.
