Winter adventure skills, Rjukan, Norway

This year we are again embarking on some winter fun in the beautiful scenery of Rjukan, Norway. Spaces are limited so please get your forms and deposit to us as soon as possible to secure your space!

This year you’ll need to make your own arrangements for flights, and I recommend you aim for Ryan Air as they’re pretty cheap with fares usually around £25 one way. Travel from Manchester to Oslo Torp airport. It’s up to you when you book your flights, but Ryan Air usually vary their prices so that the closer you book to the departure date, the cheaper the flights are - but it’s up to you. It’s up to you whether you pay to bring a bag (Ryan Air tickets include one pice of hand luggage only) - but you can wear your boots, harness and helmet on the plane so travel light and there’s no need!

Cost of the trip includes, transfers, climbing equipment (except boots) and breakfast, lunch and evening meals, and guiding - all you need to provide is your own stiff climbing boots suitable for crampons (B2 or B3 boots are suitable). If you need to hire them, check out http://www.outdoorhire.co.uk/snow.php or http://www.expeditionkithire.co.uk/expedition-boot-hire.html. You will need to arrange your own suitable travel insurance to cover flight cancellations and injury etc. whilst abroad, and you’ll need a valid passport to travel!

Please note when booking your flights - you’ll need to be going to Oslo Torp airport and arriving at similar times to the main party for the transfer.


Over the last few years the window for good ice has been getting smaller and smaller, so we will aim to ice climb on at least one day and then adapt our activities to conditions for the other days - there are opportunities to climb again but higher in to the mountains, or do some snowshoeing, and/or a picturesque bridge to abseil from (its 60m from the deck to the valley floor so not to be taken lightly!)


Dates: 9th-12th February 2018- Flights will need to depart Friday and return Monday. You are responsible for getting yourself to and from the airport.

Accommodation is in some self catering cabins at Rjukan Hytteby, in Rjukan, check out their website for more info. Cost includes linen, and is based on 5 people sharing a cabin.


Cost of the weekend is £320 and you need to pay a deposit of £150 by 12th November to secure your place! For any more info please contact us here. You can pay by PayPal using the buttons below, or make a direct bank transfer (contact us for details - this is the preferred option).


All deposits and fees are non-returnable under any circumstances, be that you being unwell, injured, or conditions not being suitable to climb or any other unforeseen circumstances. If you want full terms and conditions please select the links below to read them.
