I started working as a full time climbing instructor in 2011, and since then I haven't looked back. I love being in the wild nature, and I believe I have the best job in the world!

During the winter months, I live in Rjukan, the most fabulous place for ice climbing. You have to see it to believe how great this place is! Book me for a course or guided climbing in this ice paradise.

I also travel a lot for climbing and guiding. Places that I return to over and over again are Kalymnos and Mallorca.

Don't hesitate to get in touch with me, and I promise a rewarding and inspirational experience!

What people are saying about this trip



We booked through explore.com which gave great direct access to the guides in the area we wanted. We went with Jørn because he gave good clear information about cost, gear requirements, location and timings. He also gave us advice on accommodation in the area. As a guide he was very reassuring, methodical, informative but still fun and entertaining. We went for two days as a beginner course. My partner was slightly more anxious about ice climbing and he quickly helped her fears. He was also very accommodating when it came to me wanting to try and push my limits. I have other friends that have gone with Jørn for help with more advanced multi pitch trips and have enjoyed themselves immensely. So I could not recommend Jørn more for whatever level you are at; he will facilitate lots of fun, whilst being safe and learning a lot. Definitely want to return and will contact Jørn again when we do.



Thanks to Jorn for two great days out in Rjukan. Our beginners group found him to be knowledgeable, articulate and patient. They went on to use their new skills and enjoy some steep climbs in the second half of the week
