The Lyngen Alps are a mountain range in northeastern Troms county in Norway, east of the city of Tromsø. The mountain range runs through the municipalities of Lyngen, Balsfjord, and Storfjord. The mountains follow the western shore of the Lyngen fjord in a north-south direction. The length of the range is at least and the width is 15–. The mountains dominate the Lyngen Peninsula, which is bordered by the Lyngen fjord to the east, and the Ullsfjorden to the west. The British climber William Cecil Slingsby was the first to climb many of the peaks.Make The Lyngen Alps a part of your Tromso vacation plans using our Tromso road trip planning website.
The mountains are of alpine character, popular among extreme skiers. The highest summit is the 1833m tall Jiekkevarre, the highest mountain in Troms county; Store Lenangstind is also a prominent mountain. There are several glaciers in the mountains. The Lyngen Alps are sufficiently high as to give rain shadow in the interior lowland areas east of the mountains.

Gyönyörű ország Norvégia! Azt hiszem hogy Norvegia az egyik legszebb ország, változatos világával, a hegyek ,a fjordok a vízesések különleges termeszetet alkotnak! Mivel még nem volt alkalmam az egész országot meglátogatnom sok mindenről lemaradtam amit rövidesen pótolni fogok! Aki szereti a természetet annak szivesen ajánlom ezt az Európa gyöngyszemét!
La zona delle alpi di Lyngen si raggiunge con una escursione da Tromso di circa un'ora prendendo un traghetto.Io ci sono stato a fine marzo e mi sono mosso con auto a noleggio.I paesaggi e le montagne innevate e i fiordi ghiacciati sono di una rara bellezza.Sembra di stare in Trentino ma a livello del mare.
