1-week Rock Climbing Tour Around Lofoten, Norway


Join Urs, an IFMGA-certified mountain guide, for this 1-week climbing expedition in the stunningly scenic wilderness of Lofoten, Norway.


7 Days

Jun, Jul




  • Enjoy a wide variety of different types of rock climbing.
  • Climb under the midnight sun.
  • Eat freshly caught and grilled fish each day.


Join me for this amazing 1-week rock climbing adventure in the Lofoten archipelago of scenic northern Norway!

After meeting up at the airport in Evenes, we will head to Norway (if you are already in Norway, we will meet at the airport in Svolvaer) and then make our way to the remote archipelago, where we will spend the week climbing.

Over the course of the week, we will climb a variety of different rock surfaces from solid granite to volcanic sedimentary surfaces all over the archipelago.

Since it is the summer and we are so close to the Arctic Circle, we will be able to climb for up to 12 hours per day, experiencing the midnight sun each and every night.

There are numerous different routes that are appropriate for climbers of every level, so there is something for everyone here!

When we are not climbing, we will enjoy a relaxing stay in a modernly refurbished fishing hut, cooking fresh fish on the grill everyday and relaxing for the next day´s climbing adventure.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this epic week of rock climbing in the beautiful island archipelago of Lofoten, Norway!

If you like the look of this trip then I think you will also enjoy my 5-day traditional climbing tour in England’s Peak District!

About the guide

I was born in 1974. I have been a Mountain Guide for the past 20 years, based in Zurich. Climbing mountains is my passion and this is why I am a guide. I do it because I love it.

My specialty are unkown routes in the central Swiss Alps, some of which might have not been climbed in ages. As a climber and a guide, I love discovering new terrain around my hometown and sharing this unique experience with my guests. If you are a passionate climber, you will love it.

This is why I don't offer more famous or classic routes, most of which I have already climbed. The real adventure and satisfaction for me is found in the challenge of the unknown. Definitely, guiding in this format requires much more effort and preparedness than repeating classic routes over and over. You can rest assured that I’m prepared and ready for these challenges.

I also have other activities on the side to support myself, like a trading company which includes a technical climbing and freeride equipment store in downtown Zurich, "Ruedi Bergsport". Feel free to come by and say hi!

I enjoy sharing impressions and experiences with my guests. I promise you will always see me just as excited as my guests during the tours. Why? As I said, I am a mountain guide because I love this.

Besides climbing, I also enjoy meeting interesting people. I am always open to sharing more than just the rope, like interesting conversations about politics, economics and philosophy. Walking home after a long day up in the mountain makes people open up and sometimes share deep moments as well. Keeping an open mind and sharing experiences helps you see beyond the horizon. This exactly what a good day in the mountains means to me.

I had am amazing time during the 1-day off-piste training course at Hoch-Ybrig. Urs, our main mountain guide, was very helpful in answering my queries before the course, and Lupe from explore-share was helpful in selecting the course. We had 3 groups under Urs, Mario and Patrick, and I was in the group with Patrick. He gave us a lot of nice tips and individualized video analysis. He made a special effort to convey everything in English, since I don't know German. All the participants were very helpful and friendly too! The course is good value for money as skis are included for the weekend in the course price.
