How to get here
Situated on the Lyngen Peninsula, we are a relatively short drive from the city of Tromsø. Approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes by car.
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!

Best time to see the northern lights?
Because of our location within the center of the Aurora zone, actually the northern lights are always there, visible from Autumn to early spring, and strongest during dark clear nights. But it is a mystical phenomenon and love to play hide and seek, luckily we have written a post about it:
