When to hike

The best period for hiking around Lyngenfjord is between mid-June to September. In June and July, when the sun never sets, the mountains invites to beautiful scenarios with siluttes against the pink- and redcolored sky. The terrain varies from easy paths til steep climbing and you can easy choose tours after state and mind.

Equipment

The equipment for an ultimate hiking tour is very important. The weather in our region can change quickly so warm materials and extra clothing are good things to pack down. If you bring a tent, you are allowed to go wild camping thanks to the "Allemansretten". Food is an important part of your hiking experience and the nature is a perfect source for groceries!Lingonberries, blueberries and cloudberries are som examples and if you bring a mushroom book during Autumn, you can find chantarelles and other sorts of eatable mushrooms.
