(30+ reviews on the web)
Mountain
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.

  • As far as your can see there is just unspoilt natural beauty. Just soak up the views and it feels wonderful.  more »
  • If you could think about the departure of the Northern Finland, take a look at the stunning graphics of the scenery, in the summer sun and hiking, in winter surfing!! And, haikkausta (how to lie kirjoitetaakaan). Just for the huokailua scenery, is the Lyngen. Yet the title undiscovered place, the asphalt from the safety and the level of expression of the Norwegian. Here for anyone who is looking to recruit something awesome and wonderful, but this is the place. A certain sword whale fins and ryhävaiden massive skins can put a damper on a. .. If someone beats the photo for a better look, I promise I'll swim there naked. Here I do not swim because the water is turquoise waters as in Bali, though, but only 4 degrees. This is a must. I feel like some nice places for different needs. Laittakaapas the query. And before that in Finland while driving, can be found in places to stop.
