Description

Join me for a 2-day ice climbing course with the magical backdrop of the Northern Lights in Lyngen! Learn the skills you need to enjoy this exciting activity or put your abilities in use.

Lyngen is my home base. It is a municipality in the area of Troms, in Northern Norway. The courses take place near the village of Lyngseidet.

I offer two different programmes in this beautiful region in Norway. You can either join me on a 2-day basic course, where you learn the basics of ice climbing on top-rope, gear and basic techniques. Or, if you have previous ice climbing experience, you can join me on a 2-day course aimed to master multi-pitch climbing as a second. Also, if you feel comfortable enough, you could lead climbing on easy ice (grade 3).

Please note the courses can be tailored to your wishes, level and time available. In order to join the basic course you need a basic fitness level and it would also be good if you had some outdoor experience. For the multi-pitch climbing course you also need to be in good shape and, most important, you need to have previous experience.

Lyngen is the perfect area to learn ice climbing. We find many fantastic icefalls in this region. Besides, the Northern Lights are truly spectacular.

So send me a request and join me on this ice climbing course in Lyngen! I will be happy to be your guide and help you make the most out of this experience in Northern Norway.

About the guide

I am an IFMGA mountain guide, originally from southern Finland. However, I have spent most of my time since 2010 in Northern Norway.

Completely in love with the scenery, nature, culture and the atmosphere, I'm spending as much time as possible exploring the mountains; be it on skis, climbing (summer/winter/alpine/ice&rock), mountain biking, kayaking or just hiking. Without being an expert in any particular one of these fields, my strength lies in finding the right adventure for the day, and spicing it up with local knowledge and the understanding of nature!

Needless to say, my main focus is to provide safe trips regardless of conditions and appropriate for participants' previous experience.
As it is in Scandinavian guiding tradition in general, I always try to teach my guests something!

I'm traveling quite a bit, a lot in Northern Norway and a bit in the mountains further away. My home base is in Lyngen, especially in the winter, but my home mountains extend from here to all the way to the Stetind area south of Narvik, including Lofoten, Senja and Kvaløya.

I'm guiding fluently in five languages: English, Swedish, Finnish, Norwegian and German, et mon France est un peu primitives.
