Amazing enthusiastic instructors, helpful and constantly looking after our well-being both on the ice and after climbing. We stayed in gorgeously cosy traditional Norwegian huts on a pristine site. A weekend spent amongst beautiful scenery and in fun company, basically perfect!

Feb 2018, female solo traveler on the beginner ice climbing course. Really
Enjoyed the trip, accommodation was lovely, instructors were friendly, approachable and gave good instructions. Brilliant time!

1. Can I come by myself?

Absolutely yes - most people book alone. It can feel a bit intimidating, but your guides will do introductions when you arrive and you’ll get to know the others in no time!

2. How old do I need to be?

The minimum age for all our courses is 18.

3. Do I need to be fitter/stronger?

The hand-picked locations are all great for beginners. If you're worried however, feel free to give us a call and we'll talk you through what the course involves.

4. What does the price include?

It includes accommodation, instruction and all technical equipment. It excludes travel, food, appropriate clothing and winter mountaineering boots (these can be rented from the hostel if needed).

5. Do I need insurance?

Yes - please make sure you have travel insurance which includes ice climbing. Popular providers include the BMC and Snowcard.

6. What are the options for food?

The local supermarket Kiwi has a broad selection, with equivalent prices to a higher end supermarket in the UK (e.g. Waitrose).

7. What should I wear?

You can find a complete gear list in the Course PDF, which we also email to you when you sign up for the course. 

8. How fit do i need to be?

A moderate level of fitness is required. Climbing experience is not required; we setup a broad range of climbs suitable for complete beginners up to expert rock climbers, and coach you accordingly to your current experience.

9. How do i get to Rjukan from the airport?

If flying, go to Oslo Gardermoen - usually most affordable with Ryan Air/Norwegian Air. Course participants typically rent a car together for the 3h drive to Rjukan. When you sign up we recommend you also join the Facebook event to arrange this.

10. Do i need to bring specialist equipment?

All specialist equipment is provided. You must bring with you: Appropriate clothing (similar to ski wear) including waterproof trousers and tops. At least 2 pairs of gloves/mitts and Winter mountaineering boots (you can also rent these from the hostel)
