NORWAY, Troms – Combining glamping, adventure and culture tourism in one fell swoop, a holiday in Lygenfjord is a one-of-a-kind experience.
Activities like reindeer sledding and arctic sea fishing provide an in-depth taste of Norway’s indigenous way of life. For the adventurous, try your hand at ice climbing – said to be more unpredictable and exciting than rock climbing, on account of the slippery ice. Then, warm your insides with local cuisine and freshly distilled spirits at the world’s northernmost distillery.
But the biggest draw must be the chance to bunk in at a glass igloo. A modern, cosy self-sustained room, complete with enclosed kitchen and bathroom, the igloo’s full-glass roof offers an unbeatable way to admire the Northern Lights overhead.
