Summer Activity in Norway
Sometimes the simplest things are the best – with trail running, all you need is a decent pair of running shoes. Get into your running gear, and put on your shoes, and you are ready to head out into the enchanting wilderness of northern Norway.
Our dedicated staff at Lyngen Lodge have incredibly detailed knowledge of the numerous paths and tracks that criss-cross the Lyngen Alps. They will help you plan the ideal route that takes in some unforgettable scenery along the way.
Every July, a fantastic event takes place right outside Lyngen Lodge. The Storhaugen Vertical Kilometer starts next to the lodge, just outside the village of Djupvik, and takes you up to the summit of the Storhaugen mountain and back again. The traditional run is suitable for all different ages and abilities, but there is also a shorter route to Dalberget suitable for the whole family, and a superhero-themed run for those aged between 5-11 years.
You can find out more information about the Vertical Kilometer, along with registration details and relevant regulations at the Storhaugen Vertical Kilometer website.
