Taste Lyngenfjord

Come and visit the Lyngenfjord region and taste our local specialities!

In the Lyngenfjord region, Sami, Kven and Norwegian people live side by side. Naturally this has an influence on the local food. Go on excursions like mushroom and berry picking, salmon fishingin the Reisa river or eat traditional Coastal Sami dishes at the Centre of Northern Peoples in Manndalen.

If you want to buy fresh Lyngen shrimps, stockfish or local syrup and lemonade, we will recommend the places  to visit to get the best produce and products the Lyngenfjord region has to offer.

Bon appetit!
