Store Lenangstind is a mountain in the municipality of Lyngen in Troms county, Norway. It is within the Lyngen Alps mountain range and has the fourth-highest primary factor in Norway. It is located about 15.5 kilometres (9.6 mi) north-west of the village of Lyngseidet, just west of the Lyngenfjorden. The Strupbreen glacier lies along the south-eastern side of the mountain.

Its ascent involves easy glacier crossings, steep snow climbing and easy rock scrambling. This peak is for experienced mountaineers only.[2]
