Ice climbing in Tromsø

Today we went guiding ice climbing close to the city of Tromsø. Great activity for the early winter here in Tromsø and it´s a good way being active in the outdoors at the moment. Lot´s of big snowfalls lately but with snow shoes it takes about 15 min to reach the ice falls. You don´t need to have previous climbing experience to join us for a day and we offer these tours on a daily basis.

In Tromsø we provide ice climbing instruction and guiding in December – February. Send an e-mail for booking and availability.

Really nice with a good down jacket when going ice climbing.

When waiting for your turn you have a pretty good view over Tromsø and our sea to mountain landscape.

It looks great for the season 13/14 and for booking and requesting ski touring and courses all you need to do is to send an email from this form.
