Glacier Hiking

From NOK 2300/person
11-13 hours 8 am (back approx. 8 pm) 15.06. – 15.09.

On this tour we will take you on a memorable walk across a beautiful glacier in the Lyngen Alps!

We start our journey early in the morning when we pick you up from your hotel and have a scenic drive (approx. 1 hour and 45 minutes) to the Lyngen Alps. 

Our certified guide will provide a detailed briefing of the hike before starting.

This tour is rated as moderate, which means that you will walk on bumpy, uneven terrain and need to be able to walk around 6km (2-3hours walking) while gaining 500 vertical meters to a beautiful lake where we will have a break with lunch. 

After recharging your batteries our guide will prepare you for the glacier walk! You will gear up with a harness, crampons, ice axe and helmet. Before heading on the glacier, the guide will attach everyone to a rope. Led by our trained glacier guide, you will walk on this ancient ice mass, pass by thrilling crevasses, blue sinkholes, and rugged ice ridges. 

You will have photo stops along the way and the guide will tell you all about the geology of the area and the glacier itself, such as when and how it was formed, as well as other interesting facts. The glacier walk lasts about 2 hours. The condition on the ice may be blue ice, or ice with snow on the surface (this depends on the amount of snow we get in the winter). 

After you have filled both your eyes and your camera with this natural beauty, you will walk back down to the starting point which takes about 2 hours.

Dear Guests,
Dear Partners,

On March, 12 2020 the Norwegian Directorate of Health Bjørn Guldvog has adopted comprehensive measures to prevent the spread of Covid-19 and to help maintain the necessary health and care services.

The Directorate of Health decided that everyone who comes from outside the Nordic countries should quarantine for 14 days, regardless of whether they have symptoms or not. Retroactive from 27 February. This means if you booked a tour with Northern Norway Travel and you are within the Nordic Country before 27 February 2020 with approved documentations, we will try to run the tour with you.

If you arrived after 27 February to the Nordic country, you have to be in quarantine and are not allowed to attend the booked tour with us. Due to this new measure, we would like you to reach out to us and cancel the booking if you have to go into quarantine or to reschedule the booking free of charge within the year 2020.

If you have to cancel the booking please contact your travel insurance company for refund due to your quarantine.

Guests who booked via online travel agents or other third parties are advised to contact their booking provider for information on their policies and for assistance. All tours until 26 March 2020 are affected until further notice.

Thank you for your support and your loyalty. We will keep you updated through this dynamic situation and cannot wait to welcome you at one of our tours soon.

All the best,

Your Northern Norway Travel team
