From spectacular vistas from the top of rocky crags over the Lofoten Peninsula to the sheer massif of the Stetind, Norway is a majestic place full of rock climbing activities for those daring enough to find them. Whether you are a beginner trying rock climbing out for the first time or a seasoned pro, Norway’s diverse and beautiful terrains will not leave you disappointed.
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.
During the summer months in the north of Norway, temperatures are generally between 18ºC and 24ºC. The summer is also the driest time of year in the region.

Individual rock climbing outings generally last between a half-day and full-day. However, many of the top spots, such as the Lofoten islands, are difficult to get to, so spending a week or two is the best way to see this wonderful country.
