Hammock in the Lyngenfjord region in Northern-Norway

Hammock parks are popping up all over Norway, and finally the Lyngenfjord region in northern Norway has got its first hammock park!

In addition to the hammock park on Skjervøy, there are plenty of places in the whole region where you can sleep under the midnight sun or the northern lights - in a hammock. How about a night in Reisa National Park, or in Sør-Lenangen near Blåisvatnet?

The hammock park on Stussnesfjellet on Skjervøy

North Troms and the Lyngenfjord region's first hammock park is located on Skjervøy, just north of the Lyngenfjord region on the Stussnes mountain.

The Stussnes mountain is an easy and accessible peak of 161 meters, and the trip up takes only 15-20 minutes. The hammock park is situated just below the wooden shed at the top. Here you can set up your hammock in the park (6-7 avaliable places). From the park you are rewarded with a wonderful view of the fishing village Skjervøy, the islands, and the sea.
