From June to September
The North Ridge of Vågakallen is a physical demanding climb and requires climbers to be in good shape and comfortable following Norwegian Grade 4+ rock climbing. Please contact me if you have any questions on your skill level.
Starting time is dependent on weather, conditions, time of year, and number of climbers in the group. We average 10 – 13 hrs total time including descent.
Feel free to contact me for more details. Please note that I only organize private tours. Unfortunately, I can’t deal with clients looking to join groups. Thank you!
I supply the Ropes, Rock Rack, and all technical equipment. Climbers will need to have rock shoes, harness, and helmet (rentals available). You will carry your own small backpack on this route with clothes, water, food, and light shoes for the descent. We supply the rest.

Seth was an excellent guide with a wealth of knowledge and very interesting to chat to. I was nervous about the climb but felt incredibly safe under his instruction. The day was fantastic, I highly recommend it to anyone who can stomach the heights!
I had a great time with Charlie, my climbing guide. He was very professional and taught me new tricks and techniques.
Thank You guys for another great getaway experience! The lodge, the food, the nature, the guests, the guides all equally fantastic. Two years in a row makes this a tradition - we\'ll see you next winter again!
Lofoten Ski Lodge is a pleasure for all senses and takes service to the next level. While other resorts or hotels have to mobilise a whole lot of service to make their guests feel comfortable, Seth and his crew have a unique way of creating a cozy atmosphere that makes you feel looked after and taken care of. Thank you for another great weekend!
