* Climb Norway's national mountain.

* Discover the scenic landscapes of the Narvik region.

* Enjoy safely the East Ridge route guided by an expert.


Jutting out of the sea, Stetind is Norway's national mountain and a natural treasure that is well worth discovering on a unique climbing adventure to its summit. This gorgeous 1,392 m (4,567 ft) peak is one of the 3 most important climbs in the country next to Store Skagastølstind and Romsdalshorn.

We will climb Stetind via the Normal Route which goes up the East Ridge.

We will begin at sea level and wind up through a lovely birch forest until we reach Svartvannet, where we will stop to rest. From there, we will continue on a steeper scramble up to Stetind's false summit, where we will put on a harness and tie ourselves into the ropes. Once safety is in place, we will continue up a ridge: It will take courage as it is the most difficult part of the tour, and involves dangling high above the ground. After taking that leap of faith (we will be by your side to help and guide you), the prize is the fantastic view from the top with the Lofoten mountains on the horizon and the Narvik glaciers in the back.

In order to climb Stetind, you need a good fitness level and you should be comfortable with some exposure and heights. Previous climbing experience helps, but is not mandatory.

Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
