Open cabins in Lyngenfjord

If you are out skiing or hiking in Lyngenfjord, there are some open cabins where you can stop for a break. The cabins are primitive furnished and the risk (or chance!) to meet other people who also are visiting the cabin is big.

INFORMATION

Not all cabins have the same standard. Some are very luxury even with electricity while others are quite simple, with just an oven and some benches to sit on.You are welcome to use the cabins. But please leave no trace and pay for your overnight, when you use them. This helps to maintain the cabins, so you can visit again.
