Ice climbing course for beginners in Rjukan, Norway

Pawel was a fantastic guide, I couldn’t have hoped for anything better for my first trip ice climbing. In particular I was very impressed with his ability to make sure that I was always challenged but never entirely out of my depth and his coaching helped me to develop without overloading me with information.

The most fantastic day with the most helpful, skilled and friendly guide and instructor! We had a really wonderful and exciting day, learned a great deal and enjoyed the truly spectacular scenery. Pawel was extraordinarily supportive, patient and impressive in his sharing of knowledge and for making it a great day all around. Big thanks and we look forward to the next time!

Ice climbing course for beginners in Rjukan, Norway

We were 3 guys heading out for our first time iceclimbling, and it was one of the best trip either of us had ever been on. Friendly and attentive guide, who clearly focused on our needs. We felt very safe throughout and our only regret is that we didn't have more days. Big thanks to Pawel for being a terrific guide.

Ice Climbing Course for Beginners in Rjukan, Norway (2 days)

We booked through explore.com which gave great direct access to the guides in the area we wanted. We went with Jørn because he gave good clear information about cost, gear requirements, location and timings. He also gave us advice on accommodation in the area. As a guide he was very reassuring, methodical, informative but still fun and entertaining. We went for two days as a beginner course. My partner was slightly more anxious about ice climbing and he quickly helped her fears. He was also very accommodating when it came to me wanting to try and push my limits. I have other friends that have gone with Jørn for help with more advanced multi pitch trips and have enjoyed themselves immensely. So I could not recommend Jørn more for whatever level you are at; he will facilitate lots of fun, whilst being safe and learning a lot. Definitely want to return and will contact Jørn again when we do.

Competent, chilled and very nice guide who makes sure you get the trip that suits you. He was very patient and gave very valuable tips after each climb. I'll definitely consider him should I go ice climbing in Norway again!

2-day Ice climbing in Rjukan (Norway) with a guide

I went ice climbing with Pawel in Rjukan. I had an awesome time and I learned a lot. Pawel is both a highly skilled climber and guide (IFMGA). His instruction was clear and very helpful. He knows the area well and ensured we were first on site and didn't have to wait at the crag. He is cheerful and easy to get along with. Could not ask for more. I'll definitely look him up next timing climbing in Norway.
