I invite you to an alpine climbing course in Norway, exploring the most famous area in the Scandinavian Mountains.

This course is intended for those who have a previous climbing experience, whether it’s in rock or ice climbing. In this case, by climbing experience I specifically mean leading skills.

I aim to help you develop solid knowledge in alpine climbing. In fact, there’ll be a theoretical part as well as an essential practical part in the mountains.

You are going to learn how to become a leader in your climbing team, and also to how to decide wisely in every step of a climbing trip (before, during and after).  The idea is that you turn into an independent climber. That way, you’ll be able to choose a climbing route even if you are in a remote area you don’t know, only by making an accurate research.

During this course we’ll be based in Hemsedal, a little alpine village surrounded by high peaks. Besides, we’ll be in West Jotunheimen (in an area called Hurrungane), where you can find the highest mountains in the country. Those are the places where we’ll improve our alpine climbing skills and also enjoy the beautiful nature environment.

You can find the list of all the topics included in the course below this description.

Please contact me if you want to be a part of this alpine climbing course in Norway. I will be glad to share my knowledge with you in the amazing Scandinavian mountains.

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.
