    Do you want to make your first steps in ice climbing? Then join me for this amazing course in one of the best destinations for this sport: Rjukan, in Norway.

    Located 370 km away from Bergen and 175 km from Oslo, Rjukan is one of the best places for ice climbing in Northern Europe.

    It has more than 150 frozen waterfalls which are easy to access and suitable for everyone with a good physical condition.

    What about the course? Well, you’ll basically learn how to use your body mechanics in an efficient way. This is very important for ice climbing and it will help you to develop your skills quickly. You’ll learn basic techniques for ice climbing and practice as much as you can!

    Besides, I can adapt the course according to your skills and the amount or days you are coming (it can be from 1 to 3 days). Each day of the course will last from 5 to 10 hours.

    Furthermore, I can also provide this course in Hemsedal, as an alternative location. If its more convenient for you, or ice conditions are better there, we can choose this place.

    Please contact me if this ice climbing course interests you! I will help you to organize the best program according to your level and wishes.

    About the Guide


    I am a fully certified IFMGA guide since 2012. I have, however, mastered my climbing and skiing skills for many years before taking up guiding. I have participated in numerous climbing expeditions not only to the wild mountains of Caucasus (which I have gotten to know pretty well), but also to Nepal, Alps and have extensively climbed in many Norwegian areas. In recent years I have been resident in Norway, and I co-operate with my friends at Lyngen Outdoor Center as their chief mountain guide.
