Abisko - Ice Climbing in Abisko Canyon


Ice climbing is considered as one of the most exciting forms of climbing. During this excursion you’ll try ice climbing on the frozen waterfalls of Abisko National Park.

With ice axes and crampons as your only tools 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) you will start to climb. The icefall is 12 meters 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.
