For thousands of years, the people of northern Scandinavia lived a semi-nomadic herding lifestyle, moving from one fjord and valley to another. The Sami people (also known as Lapps or Laplanders) have a rich culture and history, one which they are proud to share with those willing to learn.
Lyngen Lodge is nestled on the slopes of the Lyngen Alps and is at one with its surroundings. The buildings are respectful of nature, and the food is sourced locally. Far more importantly, there is a strong relationship with the local community and the Sami traditions of Lyngen. You can use this opportunity to learn more about Sami culture, traditional reindeer sledding, and the Sami ways of life.
