FAQs: Rock Climbing in Norway

What should I know about Rock Climbing Norway?

Well above the Arctic Circle is where you will find the best rock climbing available in Norway. From the Lofoten archipelago to the iconic Stetind this harsh environment is both an excellent location to learn rock climbing skills and techniques as well as hone them. Getting here can be quite tricky, but your effort to arrive is more than rewarded. To get to this remote region you will likely have to fly into Oslo then take another regional flight into Bodø or Narvik and from there another flight, bus or ferry onto your final destination. However, once you arrive, you will be rewarded by sparsely populated landscapes that have been carved by nature’s fury.

Why should I choose Norway for my Rock Climbing adventure?

Stunning scenery

The mountains, fjords, valleys and forests of northern Norway are something special. These pristine landscapes are best scene from above and rock climbing is one way to do that. Enjoy this seemingly magical landscape from the top of some of the awe-inspiring features that define it.

Norwegian krone

How many days should I allocate for my Norway Rock Climbing experience?

Great experience! Though the weather wasn’t the best, Stian made sure we all had a pleasant time on the climb. Loved that he provided all the gear which was great, especially since we were visiting from another country:) Originally I wasn’t going to do the climb due to time constraints since I needed to be at Tromso by 17:30 but he adjusted the time frame for my group so we had plenty of time to do the climb and so my partner and I could go back and drive to Tromso airport:) We absolutely liked the service he provided for our group and highly recommend him as a guide to future climbers since you can tell he loves what he does for a living:)
