We started out by running winter ice climbing courses in a remote Norwegian town called Rjukan. Over these few months we had incredible fun running our now-famous Beginners Ice Climbing trip. By the end of the season, we had become Europe’s most popular winter climbing school.
Following the success of our ice climbing school, we decide to build a booking platform that other guides can use to promote and sell their trips. We call the platform, Skyhook, after the device that is used to suspend something high in the air. The platform officially launches in 2018 and proves to be a hit. We grow from 100 guests to over 1500 by the end of 2018. Our flagship trip, the Tour du Mont Blanc highlights, really takes off!
With the pandemic behind us and people itching to travel again, we’re able to take advantage of this new demand and record our biggest year in sales. By the end of the year over 16,000 people have travelled with Skyhook since our inception.
In our 5th year as a booking platform, we take stock of where we have come from and where we are going. Our aim to provide incredible adventures with local guides remains our guiding light.
