Ice Climbing in Norway
Book Between: January 20 - February 28
Ice is beautiful. Inhospitably cold, smooth, slippery and steep. Essentially it's just a really cool thing to be able to climb. Whether you are a beginner to climbing or if you've done plenty of rock climbing already you will learn loads on this course.
In a deep valley where the ice forms every year without fail, we will build up technique and understanding until you're an efficient ice climber. And all of this only minutes away from your cosy cabin. No long walk ins, just the excitement of ice climbing.
We will pick you up from Oslo Airport or meet you in the town of Rjukan/ Once there you'll find your accommodation already warm to keep out the sub zero temperatures. You'll get guided around the classic ice climbing areas and learn all the skills you need to climb this impressive medium.
For those that know the "heroes of Telemark" story, Rjukan is where the Nazis were manufacturing Heavy Water for their Atomic bomb! so there's plenty of history to explore in the area as well, if you ever feel like a day off.
For those who are unfamiliar with the "most successful act of sabotage in the second world war" I highly recommend reading "The Real heroes of Telemark" by Ray Mears.
The guide book for the area is cleverly titled "Heavy Water".
