Glacier hike in Lyngen Alps

Get up close and personal with one of the many glaciers in the Lyngen area. Take in the sheer scale of it and wonder at Mother Nature's ability to create... and destroy... entire landscapes.
Sorry: We need to stop all glacier hike now, 2018 - due the snowconditions in the mountain. Security reasons.



A superb walk from the fjord up to the mountain and glacier. We'll follow a good trail over ridges, rocks and terraced terrain. We'll try to maintain a steady pace, but as the climb gets steeper, we can take breaks if necessary. We'll walk for about 400-500m on a safe area of the glacier and look for ice-cracking that has formed with the passing of the centuries. It's exciting to walk past the different cracks and observe the water melting. You may also see a very unusual and special colour: ice blue. Signs along the hike will provide information about the unique local flora and fauna, as well as giving you an insight into local history. You can also track the glacial retreat over the past 20 years.

This is a full-day activity, so bring a backpack and plenty of food and drink. We recommend you wear hiking boots that provide support for your feet and ankles. Also, you may get sweaty, so it might be a good idea to bring a change of clothes so you don't get cold. Your safety is extremely important to us, so we will use poles, harnesses, rope and crampons on the glacier. The tour is led by one of our friendly and experienced guides.
