Norway Ice  

The Norway Ice course is based in the Telemark town of Rjukan, sitting on the edge of the vast Hardangerveeda Plateau. The valley is known for the "Heroes of Telemark" and the heavy water plant but more importantly now an area guaranteed to produce great water ice climbing conditions. I have been running courses in Rjukan since 2007 and i know the valley and venues very well which is key to getting the most out of your trip.

The course is based around 5 days instruction and a travel day at each end, 7 days in total, accommodation is in the very comfortable and well equipped Rjukan Hytteby cabins based in the centre of town, close to local amenities.

The content of the course could be based around an Intro Climbing course, Learn to Lead or just a fully "Guided" experience or a mix of all, its depends on your experience and requirements. Unlike Scotland, walk ins to venues are short so maximum time can be spent climbing.
