No previous experience is needed – we will guide you throughout and teach you the basic techniques and good manners in ice climbing. We are accredited climbing instructors and we value and put high emphasis on high-quality climbing and safety equipment.
Ice climbing is available for everybody! Book and experience for yourself.
You will be given mountaineering climbing boots with crampons, harness, helmet and all other climbing equipment needed at meeting point. You only need to bring yourself wearing own outdoor clothing suitable for the arctic outdoor conditions and bring a curious outdoor attitude along.
A professional climbing instructor will guide the ice climbers to the wall. As you have reached the ice wall, you will be given instructions in the basics in ice climbing. We return down to the Ruka Village, when you have been challenged enough and conquered yourself both physically and mentally. In the village we will take a moment to reflect the climbing experience, with a well-deserved hot drink. This program is organized according to the weather and ice conditions.
