Guiding in Tromsø this summer

Todays climb on Zappfe egga near Tromsø was a good start of this summer´s guiding out of Tromsø, Norway. We will be based in our home town Tromsø for the rest of the summer and guiding in the mountains surrounding the Island. So if you have ambitions of reaching a high summit in the lyngen alps or maybe perform your first steps of rock and alpine climbing on Kvaløya please send and e-mail or call us for more tips and dates.

Kvaløya Trek and Climb

Summertime here in Tromsø at the moment and so far we’ve had a pretty cold summer. The climbing is still good though and just done with two days of guiding on Kvaløya with an Australian guy. First day we whent trekking to the climbing hut below Baugen wich are the premier location for nice granit trad routes up here. Our goal was to climb the classic Zapffe arete but the weather didn’t improve so we got some nice Trekking done instead:) Day two was clear and cold and we went up to Lille Baugen wich is slightly lower but still has some really nice granite climbs in different grades. Starting at 700 to be sure that Ben reached his flight to Svalbard later that day… Thanks Ben for two nice days in Tromsø and Kvaløya!

For people interested in wxploring the area there is still some space in the calendar for some guiding until I leave for the alps in the beginning of august. So if you’re interested in trekking our climbing around Tromsø or Lyngen it’s just to send an e-mail!
