5 Days

Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep




  • Discover a great climbing location in the north of Norway
  • Enjoy breathtaking views of the fjords and mountains
  • Visit also the high mountain area of Skjomfjellet


I’d like to invite you to discover a hidden climbing mecca in northern Norway: the Efjord and Tysfjord area, in the Nordland province. Join me on this 5-day trad climbing trip and enjoy a great adventure surrounded by a unique landscape.

Located in the traditional district of Ofoten, this area is home to many mountains and peaks with large granite faces up to 1400-meters high. Norway’s national mountain, Stetind, is also located in Tysfjord. This is a beautiful peak rising up from the narrow fjord.

Efjord is considered to be one of the most beautiful fjords in Northern Norway, surrounded by amazing mountain formations and clear water with green sand banks. In sum, a perfect setting for an unforgettable adventur

The area is close to the sea and you can stay at the Stetind hotel, located just above sea leve, with a spectacular fjord view. The climbing area is located about 2 hours drive from the airport outside Narvik .

During the weekend it would also be possible going to the high mountain area of Skjomfjellet, where you’ll find some of the highest mountains in northern Norway, with stunning alpine peaks surrounded by glaciers. I can provide transportation for the weekend.

Send me a request if you want to join me on this great 5-day trip. Book your place and come discover a unique climbing location in Nordland. 

If you have more time available, you could also climb Stetind. Check out my programmes: Stetind via South Pillar 1-day trip or Stetind via the normal route.

About the guide

I was born and raised in the town of Narvik in northern Norway. As the case has been with generations of norwegians, my parents took me with them on trips into nature and up on the mountains even before I was able to walk by myself. When I was able to stand up, my father bought me my first pair of slalom skis and we went skiing in the slopes on the local resorts. From there, the love of nature and the mountains has continuously grown and eventually evolved into a wish to bring others and let them experience and explore together with me.

Today nature and the mountains are my "office", where I work all year round with guiding, as an instructor and tutor on different courses and as an observer for the avalanche forecasting service. Over the years I have worked and guided all over Norway, but it is the north that is home and here I spent most of my time. So come with me into nature and up on the mountains and explore the wild nature of northern Norway. Skitours in Narvik and Lyngen or climbs to Norway's national mountain of Stetind are just some of the adventures I can offer you, but the mountains up here in the north are almost limitless in abundance and possibilities.

I completely missed this trip by one month due to my fault but exacerbated by your booking system. I must have filled in the booking form about 10 times before the dates were 'correct' and I was not being charged for more than one day. Every time I tried to make changes, the form refreshed and all the details had to be filled in again. These sorts of trips/events are not like booking train tickets. Most include a window of opportunity that is heavily influenced by weather events. Your communication flow requires a booking to be made and paid before there is any connection with the guide or discussion about suitable days etc. I realise that your company is a booking agency that is concerned about introducing two parties but missing out on the management fee however I feel the system requires a more nuanced approach.

As Marius and I discovered, Svolvaergeita is currently off limits to climbing until the approach has been restored. Not sure when people will be able to access the mountain again but Marius and I are looking at other possible climbing options next week in Narvik. Jim

My sister and I did a day of ski touring in Narvik with Marius. It was such a great day. We left he Gratangen hotel at 9am and returned at 4pm. The mountain was only 15min from the hotel and was the perfect one day adventure. The snow quality was awesome, it was good weather and we had the entire mountain to ourselves. Marius tailored the trip to our ski level perfectly and was very patient and knowledgeable. I highly recommend guided ski touring in Narvik with Marius!! :)
