Alpine climbing course in Hemsedal and West Jotunheimenal (Norway)

Austrian Alps

Improve your leading skills for alpine climbing in this course in Hemsedal and West Jotunheimen, in Norway, together with an IFMGA mountain guide.

Scandinavian Mountains

+1 Days

Jan - Sep


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.

Mountain 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.

What people are saying about Pawel



Pawel was a fantastic guide, I couldn’t have hoped for anything better for my first trip ice climbing. In particular I was very impressed with his ability to make sure that I was always challenged but never entirely out of my depth and his coaching helped me to develop without overloading me with information.



The most fantastic day with the most helpful, skilled and friendly guide and instructor! We had a really wonderful and exciting day, learned a great deal and enjoyed the truly spectacular scenery. Pawel was extraordinarily supportive, patient and impressive in his sharing of knowledge and for making it a great day all around. Big thanks and we look forward to the next time!



We were 3 guys heading out for our first time iceclimbling, and it was one of the best trip either of us had ever been on. Friendly and attentive guide, who clearly focused on our needs. We felt very safe throughout and our only regret is that we didn't have more days. Big thanks to Pawel for being a terrific guide.



I’ve had a absolutely amazing time with Pawel, such a thrilling adventure. Learned a lot of techniques and I will definitely go on another adventure with Pawel. He’s methods of teaching was excellent and he is so good at what he does. Thank so much for putting me in touch with him I can highly recommend him.



Pawel was an outstanding instructor!! Extremely satisfied with the course.
