Some of the peaks are more rounded offering open skiing and great views looking out to the sea towards the North Pole. Others offer fine couloir skiing and traverses along impressive snow ridges.
The fjords and jagged Lyngen Mountains are rich in Norse folklore and most of the peaks have both Norwegian and Sami names. The Sami are local semi nomadic people (Laplanders) who traditionally herd reindeer and have a very special ancient culture.
- Ski glaciated peaks rising directly from the sea in a remote artic environment

- Ski from sea level, through arctic forests, across glaciers to beautiful ridges
- Breathtaking views across the archipelago of islands, towards Nordkapp

There are many fantastic objectives and the area offers something for everyone - from short days out to longer more remote and adventurous ski tours. However, it's not just the fantastic skiing that makes the Lyngen Alps such a special place. The fjords and coastline, the unspoilt wilderness and the peace and quiet of the Lyngen Alps all add to the attraction of this very beautiful area.
