Abisko – Ice climbing afternoon
An exciting, challenge and adrenaline-pumping combination. You feel at one with the ice. With ice axes and crampons as your only tools, filled with exhuberance, and with a professional guide by your side, you reach new heights on the stimulating, vertical icefall.
First you get acquainted with the equipment on “flat land” then, with firm steps, go down a winding path surrounded by steep rock walls. On reaching the shimmering blue ice in Abisko canyon (Abiskokanjonen) we start to climb. The icefall is 12 metres high: ideal both for curious beginners and experienced climbers. Feel the community spirit as well as security and the joy that grows throughout this intense activity.
