Visit Norway in Summer – Various activities and things to do

Lyngen Lodge Logo

During an Arctic summer in Norway, the days are long and the sun shines down for up to 24 hours per day. The fjords and mountains are filled with life during this period, with flowers in full bloom and the countryside filled with all sorts of animals. The arrival of the Midnight Sun also means all the more time for you to partake in the numerous activities on offer at Lyngen Lodge, and to spend a truly relaxing summer vacation in Norway.

The weather conditions during summer in Norway allow you to explore the diverse

terrains of the Lyngen Alps many different way, from Hikes and Trail Running to Horse Riding and Mountain Biking. Be at one with nature: get face to face with the fauna by Whale Watching, going on a Safari, Salmon River Fishing and Deep Sea Fishing, or immerse yourself in the stunning flora with trips to Glaciers and Waterfalls. Other wonders lie further off the beaten track, like the Kåfjord Canyon Bridge and the towering Mollisfossen waterfall, accessible via the Reisa River Boat Tour. Back at the luxurious comfort of the lodge, you can relax in the fresh waters of the Lyngen Fjord by Kayaking or Stand Up Paddling or partake in a serene Yoga Retreat.
