Uløya is a truly extraordinary place. This is the Arctic, where you can really feel like you are at the edge of the world! It is right here that famous peaks like Uløytinden (1114m), Kjelvagtinden (1104m) and Blåtinden (1142m) rise straight from the sea, making for wonderful hiking routes. It is right here where you find stunning crystal-clear lakes across the landscape, and where beautiful waterfalls drop down many metres from high, rocky outcrops.

During these days, you will enjoy unforgettable hikes, discovering beautiful rivers and streams, in the middle of green meadows, even on the shortest walks. You will also find herds of reindeer and elk here! You will be amazed by the magical and unique scenic landscape and wildlife of Uloya and the Lyngen Fjord.

In Uloya you will also have the opportunity to enjoy great rock climbing experiences. Completely virgin rock walls are the perfect spot for unique  climbs in the island. Uløya boasts fantastic walls in 3 picturesque valleys. Above Isvanett, you will find a great rock wall, offering challenging and interesting dry-tooling opportunities with an exciting finale on ice. Below the lakes there are many smaller areas waiting to be discovered and explored!

Lyngen is also famous for its great fishing grounds. Many islands and inlets  make for the perfect conditions for fishing in perfect solitude, often with the whole fjord to just yourself. This area is rich in catfish, cod and the huge halibut. We will take you to cross the Lyngen Fjord by boat, to catch a great halibu for your evening dinner! You will experience a true adventure in a wild location.

The area surrounding Uløya provides any angler with amazing challenges, whether your goal is sea turbot, halibut, cod, coley or catfish! The sea currents deliver an excellent fishing experience and big fish. Our Rotsund Seafishing fishing camp belongs to the renowned Dintur network, which guarantees the highest levels and safety standards.
