Panorama picture from Lyngen Municipality in Norway




THE LYNGEN ALPS

The Lyngen Alps are located in northern Norway at a latitude of 70 degrees North, far above the arctic circle. The area is north of the University town of Tromso, the largest city in northern Norway. Hundreds, if not thousands, of peaks and glaciers are packed like sardines into this very small area of the The Lyngen Peninsula. The cross country skiing and the mountain climbing were truly fantastic.
