    Itinerary

    In winter, Norway’s striking mountains are encrusted in ice, revealing a stark and dramatic landscape. This tour shows off the best of this winter moonscape. You’ll start the day with a scenic drive and ferry ride toward the Lyngen Alps, followed by a hike through the snow. After strapping on crampons, you’ll learn to ice climb a frozen waterfall. Finish by warming up in a traditional Sami Lavvu, an arctic tipi and enjoy our hot local soup.

    Together with our certified guides, ice climbing can be done by literally anyone with normal level of fitness. No previous experience needed.

    We were really looking forward to this, and even though i had a cold, we still had a great time. Probably the best tour/activity we did over 5 days in tromso. In the way of experience, my husband had done some rock climbing, but i haven't unless you count the climbing gym twice.
