Guided hiking trip to nowhere - Adventure by Design

Show map

Join our experienced guide on an adventure off the beaten tracks. We take you to our own favourite locations around Lyngenfjord. We have several different locations to choose from, and together we pick a route which best suits your interests and fitness.

Book a guided tour for your own group of 2-7 people.

The hiking trip to nowhere takes you either to the "must places" or outside of the most visited routes in the Lyngen Alps and Lyngenfjord region. Some routes are not marked and there might not be services like huts or fire places to have a break at. The views are always amazing and with a professional guide, you will be able to see places where you might not have wandered alone. With a private guide, you don't need to worry about being faster or slower than other people, and you will always have the guide's full attention.

We will plan the route according to your interests and fitness level. We can visit
* mountain peaks and glaciers (no glacier walking)
* arctic tundra landscapes
* follow WWII trails
* rugged mountain valleys

Once you book the tour, we will contact you by email or phone and agree which route we will go with you. All tours last 6-8 hours, hiking time approximately 4-6 hours. Distances vary from 10 - 22 km.

You need to bring good hiking shoes and wind proof clothing. Layered clothing is advised, as even in the warm summer days the weather can change suddenly. Also bring a water bottle and additional snacks if you wish. Guide will bring a packed lunch (for example a large sandwich and a fruit) and hot drinks. Make sure you let us know of any diet restrictions.

On our guided hiking tours, you will have a private guide who takes you to some of the most breathtaking hiking routes in the Lyngenfjord region. Our guides can tell you about the local history, geology as well as the flora and fauna - not forgetting the stories about the life today in the region. Protecting our fragile environment is important to us, so all our trips follow the leave nothing - take nothing but photos policy.

Duration: 6 - 8 hours with 4-6 hours of hiking
Particpants: private group up to 7 persons
Included in the price: private guide and lunch
Optional: pick up from Tromso / Kilpisjärvi or your accommodation in Lyngenfjord

Adventure by Design has been arranging custom and private tours in Northern Norway and Finland since 2012. Gareth Hutton, the owner and lead guide, is an outdoors instructor and photographer from New Zealand. All our guides are outdoor guides with a passion for nature, physical activity and sharing the great outdoor experiences with you. We are committed to conserve the fragile nature for future generations and thus all our trips follow the leave nothing, taken nothing but photos policy.

We provide a variety of guided day hikes around Lyngenfjord. Choose the guided hike to nowhere, and we take you to our own favourite locations, often outside of the beaten track. Or join us for a day trip to the other two Scandinavian countries on a hike to the border of Norway, Sweden and Finland.
