 Lyngen Alps

Balsfjord is North Norway´s largest agricultural municipality, but the landscape is also characterized by the two fjords, Balsfjord and Malangen, which give the municipality distinct and beautiful nature. Scientists have called Balsfjord "a miniature Barents Sea", partly because of the distinctive species of herring and capelin.

High peaks and deep fjords carve out the landscape of Balsfjord. The most known mountain peak is Blåtind or The Sleeping Soldier. Blåtind is 1182 metres high and lies in Laksevatn.
