Ice climbing

A truly unique opportunity! Lyngen is home to many easily accessible frozen waterfalls that allows for top-roping. This means that together with our certified guides, ice climbing can be done by literally anyone. No previous experience needed.

Hike with us through winter woodlands, warm yourself in the lavvu, and try Ice climbing on a frozen waterfall. Our experienced guides will make sure that you have a safe, yet thrilling experience on the ice.

To ensure personal follow-up we keep our groups small at 6 persons maximum. Its therefore advisable to book well in advance.

– 6 guests maximum/2 guest minimum.
