Description

Learn the basics or the most difficult rescue scenarios – or anything in between- on this unique rock climbing course in Lofoten. While you acquire new skills, enjoy the long midnight sun days, perfect granite cracks, glaciers, and beautiful mountains.

The midnight sun is a unique phenomenon that can only be experienced in the Arctic circle and its surroundings. The 24-hour sun period that these select places such as Norway go through is an event in itself. If you pair that with stunning landscapes, you have a perfect combination for an energy-charged experience.

The Lofoten Archipelago is a  breathtaking place where the midnight sun shines bright. With its stately mountains rising up from the sea, it is full of majestic landscapes and, in the summer, great rock climbing opportunities. On this rock climbing course in Lofoten, I would like to teach you valuable skills and show you some of its most stunning vantage points!

The first thing we will do before setting off is a quick equipment check. We will also run through some rock climbing techniques. Then, we will head out to discover the Lofoten gems. As we climb high up the granite peaks, we will catch some gorgeous views of the coastline and surrounding mountains, while putting to practice what we are learning.

We will not only have light, but also a lot of physical energy to tackle some superb climbs. I will adapt the course content to your preferences and needs.  Additionally, Lofoten has some beautiful towns and great food so it’s well worth touring over the span of a few days. Long ones at that.

For this excursion, it is best if you have some prior climbing experience. It is also important to have a good fitness level. You can join me on any of the listed group dates below or inquire about private guiding. I will be there every step of the way to show you the ropes.

Are you ready to learn some amazing rock climbing skills in Lofoten? Then book your place now and join me on this unique course in Norway, or inquire about guided rock climbing days in the region, which I also offer!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
