Guided Stetind ascent in northern Norway

Great climb. Thoroughly enjoyed Magnus. Very skilled guide, always put safety first. It is a long day. Took us 12 hours from parking lot to parking lot but the views were well worth it.

Guided Stetind ascent in northern Norway

Magnus was simply the best guide we could have hoped for! A fantastically experienced, safe and fun person to successfully take us up the summit of this incredible mountain. He was also incredibly kind in helping to facilitate me proposing to my girlfriend (now fiancé) on the summit and to safely bring us back down to earth again, for which we’re both very grateful! The climb itself was a truly memorable and wonderful one. Though physically arduous and exposed at times, it was totally worth it for the magnificent views and with Magnus, there wasn’t a single moment where we felt at risk. Huge thanks for a perfect trip!

More info about Mountain Climbing in Norway:

A must-do climb in Norway is the Stetind ascent. The Stetind mountain, which is located in Nordland sits at 1391 meters. It’s actually the national mountain of Norway. The climb is exposed so it’s not for the faint-hearted. You’ll also need ropes and a certified guide to help you climb. Close to Tromsø, you’ll find a number of fjords. One of them is a particularly good location for climbing. The Ersfjord fiord is surrounded by tall mountains which you can traverse. Mount Otertind is another classic Norwegian climbing spot. This is a steep but straightforward climb that even beginners can handle
