What to pack

While we do serve snacks and beverages on most of our tours, some of our tours are extensive and we advice that you bring a small backpack or similar with some extra clothes, water and snacks should you need it.

Most of our tours offer clothing specific for the activity, but we don’t offer personal clothing, like base layers, hats etc. Feel free to read “How to pack for the arctic” or e-mail us if you have any questions.  And don’t forget a camera for capturing the one of a kind Lyngen magic!

How to dress

North-Norwegian weather can change quickly, so it’s always a good idea to bring an extra jacket or similar. Pack a pair of gloves in case it gets windy, and a pair of good hiking shoes or boots and you should be ready to go!

Terms and Conditions

We have put some restrictions on our tours and participants. If you have any questions beyond this feel free to contact us at any time.
