Lyngen Lodge, Olderdalen

This family-owned boutique lodge, with its homely atmosphere, offers a wide array of guided adventures in the majestic Lyngen Alps and beyond.

The wonderfully remote Lyngen Lodge is a genuine year-round escape with each season bringing its own charms, from salmon fishing and glacier hiking in the summer to dog sledding and skiing in the winter. You can even witness Norway’s famous Midnight Sun, and the enchanting Northern Lights alongside the lodge’s in-house photographer. 

The lodge itself, a traditional pine log cabin kept warm through geothermal heating and a thick grass roof, is a charming base for exploring the region’s fjords, mountains and tiny coastal islands. The eight bedrooms are small but very cosy, with ensuite bathrooms and either a fjord or mountain view. 

At the end of each day, guests gather in the communal ‘stua’ lounge and dining area at the heart of the lodge, an inviting space with its natural wood fittings and crackling open fireplace. Excellent food, beautifully prepared and presented by the Kitchen Team from locally foraged ingredients, is served around the large wooden dining table. Other facilities include a sauna and outdoor Jacuzzi (perfect for soothing aching muscles), a library, seminar room and fully licensed bar.
