Glacier hike in Lyngen Alps - Aurora AlpsDate: Wednesday 20 jun 2018 - Friday 12 Oct 2018 Show map
No visit to the Lyngen area would be complete without experiencing at least one of the many glaciers up close and personal. It is here you can comprehend the true scale and wonder of nature’s ability to create and destroy whole landscapes.
Information signs along the way will give you an insight into local history and help you discover the flora and fauna, which is unique to glacial areas. You can also follow the glacier’s retreat from the last 20 years. We go 400-500 m out on the glaciers in a safe area. Bring good walking shoes, suitable clothing, backpack with your own food and drink.
It is interesting to walk around on the glacier with different cracks and water which melts and at times you can see the color that is special for several glaciers - ice blue. Safety is important so we go with crampons, harnes, rope and spells.
