Mountaineering Island

Lyngen has been known for hundreds of years as a mountaineering destination, and many great legends has attempted some of their most spectacular adventures here. From the great mountaineering legend and philosopher Peter Wessel Zapffe and his failed attempts at summiting Piggtinden. To Elisabeth Main, a strong figure who during a time where women climbing mountains were unheard of; Achieved numerous first ascents on her expeditions to Lyngen.

We definitely have a heritage to maintain, and spectacular summits to be proud of. However it’s not about climbing the highest summit or trekking the longest trail, but simply taking part in an exploration and experience our beautiful region with the same enthusiasm and sense of adventure as those before us.

If you are up for it our guides will take you out there and show you our favourite hikes, and we’d like to welcome you to a challenge.

So get out there, explore, conquer and roam. But let’s keep our mountains clean for the generations to come and leave no trace!
