Join us for a 7-day whale watching week in Norway’s amazing Lyngen Fjord, a unique paradise of unspoilt nature. We will take you out every day to watch whales in some of the most beautiful fjords in Troms county.

Watching these impressive animals up close, in such a breathtaking environment of dramatic peaks and stunning fjords, it’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience! We will search for whales and enjoy the great outdoors, watching them often swimming right next to us.

It’s quite difficult to see whales in open sea. We get the best chances to watch them in between the fjords, where there are a lot of fish for the whales to hunt. Watching the whales playing, swimming and hunting is a memory for life!

During these days, you will be staying at our comfy, warm and fully equipped apartments at the Lyngen Outdoor Center, in the  Uløya Island, 500 km beyond the Arctic Circle. Situated in the Lyngen Fjord, Uløya is a very special and quiet place, surrounded by  beautiful mountains and crystal-clear fjords.

This trip is also a great opportunity to watch the fascinating Northern Lights, or Aurorea Borealis, a magical ballet of light dancing across the night sky, with a great colour palette. Come enjoy nature at its wildest, stunning views and tranquility, in a very special place.

About the guide

The Lyngen Outdoor Center is located in Norway´s far north, in the eastern part of the island of Uløya.

Located just 500km beyond the Arctic circle and surrounded by stunning fjords (including the famous Lyngen fjord), Uløya is a dream setting to practice a wide range of activities (ski touring, climbing and hiking are an every day occurrence here).

The Lyngen Outdoor Center team is made up of IFMGA-certified guides and outdoor lovers only. We are skiers, climbers and anglers. Our expeditions have taken us all around the world, including Himalaya, the Tian Shan Range, Patagonia, Madagscar and Mali, to name a few. We created this place to share our knowledge and passion with you.

You won't have trouble finding us: the only route on this part of the island leads straight to us. You can take a ferry to get here or we can pick you up in our "water taxi".

Our very comfortable apartments are located just 50 meters away from the water line. They offer everything you'll need for a skiing or fishing trip with your friends, including a drying room. Our boats are some of the most modern in all of the Lyngen area and a large sized pier is located just 50m away from your accommodation.

Come explore the unbelievable Arctic. We'll be happy to welcome you!

Artur and the team at Lyngen Outdoor are FANTASTIC. The accommodation is beautifully positioned on the edge of the fjord, with stunning views and amazing ski touring / hiking straight out the back door, or further afield from their boat. The food is also amazing! One day we caught a cod (post skiing) and had cod sashimi as a starter, followed by salmon tartar, reindeer stew and chocolate cake. Pawal our ski guide was very experienced and was incredibly patient with our mixed ability group - taking us on 6 awesome tours. Thank you for a truly incredible week

Artur and the guides (+all other staff) at the Lyngen Outdoor Center really go above and beyond to make this an unforgettable experience. The lodge is beautiful and much more luxurious than I ever imagined. The food is very good and exactly what you need after long days of skiing. My guide Pawel was extremely helpful and communicative and provided a truly exceptional skiing experience. I would highly recommend The Lyngen Outdoor Center for anyone interested in skiing in Northern Norway.

Well where to begin. This trip exceeded all expectations. Please do note I live in the Alps so am familiar with beautiful mountains and snow (well these days less snow in the Alps...). The beauty of this place is unsurpassed unless you're already familiar with Arctic scenery. Majestic snowy mountains falling straight into crystal clear blue Fjords. How often can you put your touring skins on, on a beach where you've arrived by small boat and then climb 1200ms to skin down untouched powder fields unseen by many people, let alone ski tourers.....that's what you get on this trip. As for the Tour guides, we had Marcin, what a great guy and Pavel too, was with the other group. Both super professional, patient (particularly with me as I am a 6/10 Tourer) and super pleasant and beyond fit (like very happy and supportive Terminator machines :-)). thank you Marcin you are a star. Brilliant, both of them. And then there's the whole team, Artur who runs the Lyngen center (you'll enjoy the conversations with Artur on politics and history - always interesting over dinner and glass of wine), all the staff and particular shout out to Janusz, the chef, whose food is just perfect for a touring trip. Brilliant hearty breakfasts and super tasty four course dinners, varied every day! From traditional fresh cod to reindeer stew, then pasta to fajitas. Also a special shout out to Bogdan who will take you Halibut and cod fishing for the day which was great fun and we caught fresh fish (large cod) for the evening meal that day. So what else to say, if you want amazing mountains, tonnes of snow and fresh powder plus advanced and challenging technical touring run by such a friendly team led by Artur (so friendly that that they will feel like friends by the time you leave), then don't waste time looking elsewhere, just book The Lyngen Outdoor Center and you will absolutely not be disappointed. My thanks go to all of the people that made it a truly wonderful vacation....and we saw the Aurora Borealis too on the first night and the following night! This is a 5 star location and vacation.
