Both Lyngen prawns and lamb are hailed as among the best in Norway. Fish here is excellent too, as you would expect, straight from the cold, pristine waters of the Lyngenfjord. Why not catch your own? Book a fishing trip to catch halibut, cod, haddock, sea wolf or coalfish, or try ice fishing in winter.
