The most popular day hike in the Lyngen Alps, way north of the Arctic Circle, is to Blåisvatnet.
A striking blue colour with steep mountains in the background.
It’s considered an EASY hike for the family — but I rolled my ankle a little twice on the rocks and scree.
About 8km return, but watch your footing.

It’s fairly close to the Svensby ferry landing.
Personally, I wasn’t all that impressed by Blåisvatnet. There are gorgeous lakes everywhere in Norway. For me this wasn’t anything special.
In fact, I preferred another hike even closer to Svensby ➙ I had the Barheia summit all to myself. The much-more-famous Blue Lake was super crowded the day I was there.
