This established site is very popular, with many customers returning for the well maintained facilities and easy access to fishing and boating. In the centre of Lofoten, alongside a tidal fjord with mountains all around, the setting and location is quite idyllic. Large terraces provide fine views for most of the 165 touring pitches, mainly on grass, some with hardstanding, all with 16A electricity. Lyngvaer provides a base to absorb the island’s scenery and traditions in an area which also offers walking, ornithology and photography.
There are also cabins and rooms to rent at the site, all sleeping up to five people. Boat hire is available (canoes, rowing and motor boats) and the site has its own waters for salmon and trout fishing which is free. The owners bake their own bread and rolls to order, with all other provisions available at a supermarket in Henningsvaer (10 km). This attractive town also has an activity centre, Festvag, which includes quad bikes, kayak/canoeing, archery, shooting, climbing and sea fishing trips. The Viking museum is worth a visit, where guides dress in Viking costume and in high season you can help to row a large replica longship.
