Description

I invite you to join me for one or more days of ice climbing in Narvik, a spectacular location of incredible natural beauty in northern Norway. In fact, Narvik and its surrounding offer some of the best ice climbing in all Norway.

Also, due to its location north of the Arctic Circle, Narvik can also boast of a very long season, from November to April.

The potential for ice climbing is almost endless here. We can reach from short, low angled climbs close to the road to steep multi pitch waterfalls high up in the mountains, and it's just 20 minutes and up to 2 hours drive away from the city of Narvik.

We also have endless opportunities for alpine climbing, with big or small walls and long rides. There are so many ice climbing possibilites to enjoy here! In other words, there is something for everyone, from beginners who want to try out ice climbing to advanced climbers who want to experience steeper stuff.

If you are looking to try out some of the more low angled climbs close to the roads there are no specific requirements, in terms of previous experience. However, for longer days and climbs you have to be experienced in winter travel and it is also preferable for you to have ice climbing experience. Anyway, I will plan the days and trips according to your requirements, wishes and time available.

Our climbing spots are located close to the sea in different fjords or even out on the surrounding islands, such as Andørja. Also, in valleys like Spansdalen or Sørdalen, in southern or inner Troms, or up on the mountain plateaus of Swedish Lappland, including in Abisko.

The closest airport to Narvik is Evenes, just one hour drive away from the city of Narvik. It's soon to be about only 40-45 minutes away with a new bridge that is soon to be completed.

Regarding accommodation, Narvik offers many good choices, from large hotels in the city, to smaller lodges both up in the mountains or close to the sea.

Besides, on days off or in the evenings there are plenty of other exciting options: you can either go scouting for the northern lights or try ski touring in one of the many mountains in the area. Or you can go skiing in the resort located in the middle of the city of Narvik itself, go dogsledding or visit the wolfes in the Polar Zoo. Lots of exciting experiences await you in Narvik!

So come join me on this great ice climbing trip in the beautiful and wild mountains in Narvik. Just send me a request and we will start planning your next adventure in Norway. I also offer a guided ski touring programme in Narvik. You should check it out!

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.
