1 Day

Jul, Aug, Sep




Stetind (1391 meters) is Norway's national mountain for a very good reason. Located in the northern region of Nordland, it is the most stunning peak in the country and a favorite among climbers!

The normal route to the summit is not technically difficult but quite exposed, so it is key to attempt the ascent in the company of a professional mountain guide. I'll keep you safe all the way!

Starting from the parking lot, the climb takes between 10 and 14 hours. Take into account that the ascent is quite demanding and, therefore, requires a very good fitness level.

First, we'll hike for about 3 hours to the Halls pre-summit. From there, we will tie into ropes and climb for about 2 hours to reach the Stetind summit. Finally, the descent takes about the same time. We'll make sure to take it easy during the climb because the main goal is to enjoy the day!

I can take you on this Stetind ascent every day from July to September, in groups of 2 or 3 people. We will meet at the parking lot or we may arrange to pick you at Narvik.

There are several accommodation options in town. From camping sites to 4 star hotels, you can choose the best option for you and your group. Let me know if you need advice on where to stay!

If you are vising Nordland during the winter, make sure you take a look at some of my other programs. For example, you could check out my off-piste skiing day in Narvik.

So contact me now and come climb Norway's most emblematic mountain. It is a great way to get to know this beautiful and remote corner of the world!

About the guide

I have climbed and skied all my life but started working as a guide in 2009. I became a fully-qualified IFMGA guide in 2012. I'm based in Herjangen (just north of Narvik in Ofoten, Nordland, Norway) and have been skiing in this area for over two decades. I guide all over the world but prefer to be home in Trollviken! My goal is to share my knowledge and my love for these mountains to increase your skills. I used to be an investment banking executive but I'm a lot better now!

A very experienced guide. Professionalism radiates from every angle. He treats his job more than work. He maintains a nice relationship with climbers on the wall and on the trail. Congratulations Magnus, keep it up. Thank you for fantastic adventure. Now, Mt. Stetind is a part of me.

Great climb. Thoroughly enjoyed Magnus. Very skilled guide, always put safety first. It is a long day. Took us 12 hours from parking lot to parking lot but the views were well worth it.

Magnus was simply the best guide we could have hoped for! A fantastically experienced, safe and fun person to successfully take us up the summit of this incredible mountain. He was also incredibly kind in helping to facilitate me proposing to my girlfriend (now fiancé) on the summit and to safely bring us back down to earth again, for which we’re both very grateful! The climb itself was a truly memorable and wonderful one. Though physically arduous and exposed at times, it was totally worth it for the magnificent views and with Magnus, there wasn’t a single moment where we felt at risk. Huge thanks for a perfect trip!
