Get to know XLyngen

XLyngen is a Family business that started in 2004. We operate with nature-based tourism, and we are located in the northern part of the Lyngen Alps. XLyngen is based in a fishing village called Nord-Lenangen with approximately 170 inhabitants, with long traditions for fisheries, agriculture, and industry. Here you can taste the good heather shrimp produced in the area.

XLyngen has accommodation for up to 42 people in fishermen's cabins and apartments. We have many facilities such as a sauna, jacuzzi, boat rental, meeting room, and guided activities. The lobby and the restaurant are located on the pier overlooking the sea on all sides. We have many top staff members, including a chef, fishermen, and natural and cultural guides.

The nature and light of our area is the reason why we settled here. This is what we want to show our guests, as the best in Lyngen all year round, through our seasons. Birding and wildlife are rich and fishing opportunities are good in the Lyngenfjord.

In the summer you can experience fishing in the midnight sun, hiking and cycling along the fjord and in the mountains. In the fall, hiking is at its best, with great colours and opportunities for harvesting berries and mushrooms. Winter offers good snow conditions with nice skiing and summit trips in the Lyngen Alps. We offer activities such as northern light safaris, snowmobile safaris, and snowshoeing. Our package tours also include reindeer and dogsled trips, as well as whale-watching excursions. Spring brings us bright evenings perfect for skiing in the midnight sun because the snow doesn't melt until mid-June up here in the mountains.

Our trips often visit the Lyngsalpan landscape conservation area, which is important to preserve our unique flora and fauna for the future, we want to safeguard our culture and nature when meeting with our guests. XLyngen is environmentally certified through Green Key since 2017 because we want to minimize our impact on the Arctic climate and the environment.

We provide comprehensive experiences such as day trips, package tours, and meeting-conference facilities for those who are looking for a tailormade stay at XLyngen.
