Norway is packed full of thousands of icefalls under excellent wintry conditions that present the best ice climbing experience. Here you’ll find options for all levels of climbers. From single pitch routes to amazing ones that stretch to 800-1,500 meters long. In addition, thanks to its proximity to the sea, the icefalls in the western fjords of Norway are bent by the winds, thus forming frozen walls with the most exotic and challenging shapes. It’s strongly recommended to come Norway with a solid program planned along with a professional guide. Otherwise, you’ll run the risk of coming during periods of thaw or rain that will make your ice climbing experience difficult. Visit between November and March for ideal ice climbing conditions.
