Glacier hike in Lyngen Alps - Aurora AlpsDate: Monday 17 jun 2019 - Friday 13 Sep 2019 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. 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.
A great walk from fjord to mountain and glacier. It is planned to spend the whole day on this trip, so bring plenty of food and drink.
We follow a good trail with ridges, rocks and terraced terrain. Use of mountain boots that provide good support is recommended. In the steepest parties we take plenty of breaks, but are reluctant to run smoothly so that we return to the starting point within a reasonable time. Someone gets sweaty and then it's good to have a change of clothes on the trip or it might get a bit cold.
