Lyngen (also known as Norwegian: Lyngenfjorden, Northern Sami: Ivgovuotna, Kven: Yykeänvuono) is a fjord in the municipalities of Skjervøy, Nordreisa, Lyngen, Gáivuotna–Kåfjord, and Storfjord in Troms county, Norway. The 82-kilometre (51 mi) long fjord is the longest fjord in Troms county. It stretches from the village of Hatteng in Storfjord in the south all the way north to the islands of Skjervøy. The Lyngen Alps lie along the western shore of the fjord and the European route E06 highway runs along the eastern shore. The Kåfjorden branches off of the main fjord on the east side, and the southernmost part of the fjord is also known as the Storfjorden.
