Summer Sea Nature Safari - Getting to know the local wildlife

Lyngen Lodge Logo

Floating in the middle of the Lyngen fjord, you are at the heart of nature. Around you, dense forests, stark mountains, and flowering pastures sparkle in the summer sun. Above you, the birds wheel in the sky. Below, a whole ecosystem thrives under the cool waters of the fjord.

Lyngen Lodge, a luxury boutique hotel in the Lyngen Alps, offers the chance to do just that with a unforgettable Norway safari of Lapland and the Lyngen region. Aboard the Spirit of Lyngen boat, the expert guides take you to the best places to see the fantastic wildlife that makes Lyngen so special.

The Activity

Summer Sea Safari in Norway

This tour exposes you to the post ice age geology and ancient fishing culture dating back to the Viking era some 1000 years ago. The tour will begin by crossing over the Lyngen Fjord to cruise below the gigantic walls of sheer rock that rise directly out of the fjord. Here we will go on land and take a short hike to the largest glacier waterfall of the Lyngen National Park. Afterwards, we will cross to the island of Uløya and visit the historical cultural site of Havnness where they are still practicing the Viking art of drying cod fish to this day.
