Picture a colorful arctic city with a lively cultural scene, a delectable dining scene, a bustling nightlife, and residents who are ready to help you in your quest for fun. Summer offers plenty of opportunities for canoeing through tranquil forests, wild bike rides down hillsides, and hiking the Lyngen Alps. All this takes place in the world's most northernmost city, 217 miles from the Arctic Circle, amid some of Norway's most scenic landscapes: the weather-beaten islands of the Arctic Ocean, blue fjords and glaciers. From gentle coastal mountains to the Lyngen Alps—rising a mile up from the fjords—explore numerous foot paths that offer fantastic panoramas of the open seas. Take advantage of the open waters for exciting kayaking expeditions or spend a couple of hours fishing in some of the richest waters in the world.
