Ice climbing under the Northern Lights in Northern Norway is truly a magical experience. Join me on this ice climbing tour for 1 or more days in Lyngen and enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime-adventure!

Why would you choose climbing in November or December, when it is all dark? Because it is the most special time of the year to ice climb! Everything is quiet and still and it is the perfect time to watch the fascinanting polar lights. They are like a ballet of light dancing across the night sky!

Please note that I'm fully booked from January 5 to April 30.

There are plenty of great icefalls in Lyngen, of all sizes and suitable for both beginners and experienced climbers. If you want to join this tour you need at least a basic fitness level.

We can tailor this trip to your wishes, level and to the time you have available. I assure you we will spend an unforgettable time ice climbing in Lyngen.

So what are you waiting for? Request your booking and join me on this great ice climbing tour under the Northern Lights! I also offer ice climbing courses in Lyngen under the polar lights. Check it out!

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.

We wanted ice climbing and we got exactly that. The gear we used was in good shape and we had a ton of fun. What can you ask more for?
