About

Explore the ice cave where others turn around! We take you further into the glacier's meltwater channels with ice axes, ropes and crampons.

We drive up the glacier and go into the cave before we saddle up with the climbing equipment and explore the cave system. To get to the ice cave, we use a sleigh that you sit inside, and which is transported by a guide using a snowmobile.

No previous knowledge about ice climbing is required as the guide will teach you safety techniques and how to climb on ice. The guide is a certified climbing instructor and will bring all the safety equipment that's necessary.

This is an exclusive tour with a maximum of 4 guests. All climbing equipment is provided by us.
On this adventure you need good alpine / mountain shoes with stiff soles.

Price 1: NOK 3560 per person including transport in Sleigh
Price 2: NOK 2460 per person on a hike with snowshoes max 7 hours (on request)
