From magnificent nature to cultural heritage and small-town life, the Lyngenfjord region offers an authentic and welcoming opportunity to experience Northern Norway! Sustainable tourism for the area means tourism that positively contributes to the local community: employment, conservation of nature, and local culture.
We are delighted to announce that in autumn 2021, the Lyngenfjord region was granted the Sustainable Destination label by Innovation Norway for the second time. This is an important recognition for the ambitious and constant development work that the whole community participates in.
What makes Lyngenfjord a sustainable destination? To answer this, we created a short documentary series where local companies, employees, and citizens talk about their actions and insights towards a more sustainable region. These videos are made by the talented, local filmmaker, Ørjan Bertelsen www.bertelsenfoto.no
