The mountains rise straight out of the sea. The routes start down at the shoreline. As you climb you hear the waves and look down at the turquoise blue sea. Climbing in Northern Norway is incomparable, like being in paradise. In the north you will find some of the most unusual climbing areas in the world. Views of the Vestfjorden and blue mountains from Stetind to Steigen are unforgettable.
