Vågakallen is a massive peak and stands right above the Norwegian Sea. If your looking for a nice day climb that encompasses all Lofoten has to offer then you must climb the North Ridge of Vågakallen.

Skill level
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!
