Trip Planner: Europe / Norway / Northern Norway / Troms / Lyngen Municipality / Nature / The Lyngen Alps
The Lyngen Alps are a mountain range in northeastern Troms county in Norway, east of the city of Tromsø. The mountain range runs through the municipalities of Lyngen, Balsfjord, and Storfjord. The mountains follow the western shore of the Lyngen fjord in a north-south direction. The length of the range is at least (depending on definition—there are mountains all the way south to the border with Sweden) and the width is 15–. The mountains dominate the Lyngen Peninsula, which is bordered by the Lyngen fjord to the east, and the Ullsfjorden to the west. The British climber William Cecil Slingsby was the first to climb many of the peaks.The mountains are of alpine character, popular among extreme skiers. The highest summit is the 1833m tall Jiekkevarre, the highest mountain in Troms county; Store Lenangstind is also a prominent mountain. There are several glaciers in the mountains. The Lyngen Alps are sufficiently high as to give rain shadow in the interior lowland areas east of the mountains.Work out when and for how long to visit The Lyngen Alps and other Lyngseidet attractions using our handy Lyngseidet tourist route planner.

Kjører du nordover, eller for dens saks skyld sørover E6 og er på høyde med Lyngsalpene, anbefales å stikke av E6 og kjøre på vestsiden av Storfjorden til Lyngseidet (868), og fortsette fra Lyngseidet... more »Run the North, or for its matter South E6 and is on a par with lyngsalpene, it is recommended to leave the E6 and run on the West side of the Large fjord to lyngseidet (868), and continue from lyngseidet (91) to Svensby and then take the ferry across the fjord Ulls if you plan you further against Tromsø. When do you get with you lots of great scenery, and a great impression of lyngsalpene.View original
Здесь у меня был очередной несложный пешеходный маршрут. Эти горы чем то напоминают Альпы в Швейцарии, поэтому их так называют.Here I had a regular easy pedestrian route. These mountains than that resemble Alps in Switzerland, hence their name.View original
