One week sailing and trekking around Tromsø and Lyngen Alps

One week sailing and trekking around Tromsø and Lyngen Alps

North Troms/ Lyngen Area

North Troms and Lyngen (Lyngen Alps) is famous among skiers and climbers. Now we want to open up this region for sailing and trekking. Perhaps exploring is more correct. Personaly we enjoy trekking is this area and we invite you to follow the foot-steps of Ivar and Emely’s ancestors.

Reisa National Park

We suggest a visit to the Reisa national park and use a Riverboat to get to the Reisa-vally and Mollis falls. The inhabitants of the region is a mix of Norwegians, Finnish- (Kven) and Sami-people are living peacefully together. You will come close to an interesting population, modern, but still very close to the nature.
