Come and experience the Arctic light in the autumn. After two months of the Midnight Sun, the nights are starting to get dark again. This will give you the opportunity to spot impressive Northern Lights.

The colours in the nature also change, from summer green to the colourful yellow, red and more. Perhaps even white too, if you catch a glimpse of the first snow of the season. 

Highlights:

  • Very remote place with view of the open sea and the Lyngen Alps
  • Choose between 5 days/4 nights (every Sunday – Thursday) or 4 days/3 nights (every Thursday – Sunday)
  • Guided hiking trip to Lyngstuva
  • Northern Lights workshop
  • Spa with sauna and hot tub

Season: From 1 September to 15 October

Price: from NOK 9,495 per person

Accommodation: XLyngen is situated in the village of Nord-Lenangen, which is almost on the northern tip of the Lyngen Peninsula. The five cabins and two apartments are well equipped, providing comfortable accommodation right by the water's edge. You can escape from your daily routines and stress, and find peace and tranquillity in the quietness of the Arctic nature. The cabins each feature a kitchen, lounge and private bathroom.
