Visit Lyngen and Koppangen Brygger is the perfect place to discover and explore Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights. We have our own marked track so you can experience the Northern Lights in the wild on your own.
Maybe you happened across a program on BBC called Joanna Lumley The Land of the Northern Lights?
Joanna Lumley, a famous actress known from tvshows like “Absolutely Fabulous” always had a dream seeing the snow and the Northern Lights. The actress sat off to realise a life`s ambition and the resulted in an documentary facing Joanna Lumley travelling around the Arctic and up to the northernmost part of Norway. She took the viewers on a very personal journey as she sought to see one of nature´s greatest spectacles.
At Visit Lyngen: Koppangen Brygger you can discover Aurora, The Northern Lights, by yourself. Sit down relaxing in our outdoor seawater (40C) bathtub as you watch the Northern Lights dance its way over the sky. Another option is to get on some warm clothing and walk around 300 metres up the hill and into the wilderness surrounding Koppangen Brygger. Sit down, lay your head back and wait for the Aurora to come if it isn`t allready there. If it`s not moving an old saami myth say that if you start to Joik (saami folksong) it would start dancing like never before.
Don`t let the silence fool you, things are going on arround you. If you are really lucky you could see a fox running by hunting for food. Even though it`s very timid it is rather common to see it within a weeks stay.
Feel free to contact us if you have any questions regarding the best time for a visit to experience the Nortern Lights etc
