Norway Waterfall Ice 2022
Ice climbing in the Rjukan region of Norway
Course overview Course dates & availability
Norway is famous for every type of waterfall ice, from the mightly wall of Hyndefossen, to the exciting enormous pillar of Vettisfossen.
This course is aimed at quite strong ice climbers, who want to push their grade and climb as much waterfall ice as possible during a week. You should be happy seconding Grade IV or V ice.
If you are looking for ice falls with no walk-ins, accessible from a car park, Norway is for you. You are led by either an IFMGA Mountain Guide or an experienced and talented MIC Mountain Instructor, who drives you to all of the best sites for the best conditions.
The icefalls of Norway keep their condition longer in the year than the Alpine waterfalls, giving a longer season.
On demand: if no scheduled course dates are showing in the column on the right, we can still operate a course on demand for two people booking together, on any dates that suit from January through until the end of April, arriving Sunday and departing Saturday.
