Stetind normal route rock climbing trip


Reach the summit of the Stetind, Norway's national mountain, on this rock climbing trip along with Marius, an IFMGA certified mountain guide.

1 Day

Jul - Sep




Join me on this 1-day rock climbing trip and reach the summit of Stetind (1392 m), Norway's national mountain! This stunning peak is an impressive high granite monolith. It has an obelisk shape that gives it a unique look.

The Stetind lies in Tysfjord, about an hour drive from Narvik. Most important, I can assure the view from the top is unforgettable!

We will start our climb from the parking lot at the foot of the west ridge of Stetind. From that point, we will hike for about 3 to 4 hours to the Halls fortopp, the east summit. The last stretch to the main summit goes along the east ridge, the normal route. Our climb here will be mostly easy but airy scrambling.

Then, about half way along the ridge, we will find a marked crux known as Mysosten. This is where we will have to climb up an impressive 15-20 meter portion (norwegian grade 4+). It has an 800 meter fall straight down to the valley below us!

We will climb about 1400 meters to the summit of Stetind. It is 10 kilometres in length approximately. Also, getting to the summit and back  will take us between 10 to 14 hours.

In order to join this climb you need to have experience in rugged terrain. Besides, although you don't need to be an experienced climber, you should feel comfortable in exposed and airy terrain.

Would you like to join me on this exciting ascent to the Stetint? Then contact me and I will give you more information. We will enjoy an amazing climb! And if you're looking for a more challenging ascent, I also offer a Stetind ascent by the South Pillar.

Mountain Guide

I was born and raised in the town of Narvik in northern Norway. As the case has been with generations of norwegians, my parents took me with them on trips into nature and up on the mountains even before I was able to walk by myself. When I was able to stand up, my father bought me my first pair of slalom skis and we went skiing in the slopes on the local resorts. From there, the love of nature and the mountains has continuously grown and eventually evolved into a wish to bring others and let them experience and explore together with me.

Today nature and the mountains are my "office", where I work all year round with guiding, as an instructor and tutor on different courses and as an observer for the avalanche forecasting service. Over the years I have worked and guided all over Norway, but it is the north that is home and here I spent most of my time. So come with me into nature and up on the mountains and explore the wild nature of northern Norway. Skitours in Narvik and Lyngen or climbs to Norway's national mountain of Stetind are just some of the adventures I can offer you, but the mountains up here in the north are almost limitless in abundance and possibilities.

What people are saying about Marius





I completely missed this trip by one month due to my fault but exacerbated by your booking system. I must have filled in the booking form about 10 times before the dates were 'correct' and I was not being charged for more than one day. Every time I tried to make changes, the form refreshed and all the details had to be filled in again. These sorts of trips/events are not like booking train tickets. Most include a window of opportunity that is heavily influenced by weather events. Your communication flow requires a booking to be made and paid before there is any connection with the guide or discussion about suitable days etc. I realise that your company is a booking agency that is concerned about introducing two parties but missing out on the management fee however I feel the system requires a more nuanced approach.



As Marius and I discovered, Svolvaergeita is currently off limits to climbing until the approach has been restored. Not sure when people will be able to access the mountain again but Marius and I are looking at other possible climbing options next week in Narvik. Jim



Fantastic and experienced guide! We highly recommend Marius and the area of Narvik!
