Recomended trip in Lyngen, The Lyngen Alps
Use of car, park and make short og longer walks
Walk in valies, not up on high mountains

Under i give you some recomdatinons for trips in Lyngen area. You can reach most of the Lyngen area in 2 houers drive from Tromsø.

As you see on the map, you can reach Lyngen driving inland OR use one/two ferries (crossing Ullsfjorden and Lyngsfjorden).
The traveltime to Lyngseidet is aprox 2 houers (inland OR ferry)

Furher down I have been writing comments on each place/area.
Where ever you decide to drive, you ca jump of the car and do short or longer walks.
I start of June, I gues that er show is typical from 400-500 meters and higher up.
When I show my trip-reports, it is mainly to show pictures from the area ...
not do not need to reach the top of the mountains !
