Do you dream of staying overnight while the magical Northern Lights dance in the sky above you? Do you want to create a life-long memory during your holiday in Northern Norway? If so, we recommend reading about exotic places to stay by the Lyngenfjord.
There are several unique places to stay and all have the same aim – to give you an unforgettable experience! Rather than simply being a place to sleep, these places are specially designed to give you that little extra.
Green Gold of Norway - Stay in a crystal lavvo
Green Gold of Norway offers the chance to stay in a Crystal Lavvo! As the name suggests, this is a lavvo with a crystal clear glass roof! These are a modern version of the traditional Sami lavvo (herdsmen’s tent). The crystal lavvo is equipped with a comfortable bed and a wood burning stove to keep you warm.
As night falls, you can enjoy the view of the starry sky, the Northern Lights and the majestic Lyngen Alps. The camp is minimalistic, simply furnished and the guests share several of the facilities. The price includes meals and return transfers from/to Tromsø.
Host Francisco Damm, a well-known Northern Lights photographer, ensures the guests receive a photo of themselves under the Northern Lights.
An overnight stay in a crystal lavvo is something you will never forget!
