Bespoke

Bespoke

This style, of course, gives you the opportunity to build the course you want and would suit a more mountaineer, who wishes to plug holes in there knowledge and skill toolbox.

It also gives you the opportunity to focus on a certain aspect of alpine mountaineering that you are unsure about. For example glacier rescue; Your an experienced mountaineer however you have very little or no experience of glacier travel then we could set up a course focused purely on crevasse rescue, or you have a mountain that you wish to climb and would like an experienced instructor to join to provide mentoring and advice when needed.

The advantageous of a bespoke course allows you to build a course around your needs and your friends at the level that you require.

We are always happy to discuss bespoke courses and find whats right for you.

Flights, train and getting there

bus station.

From the Airport, you can take the “flytoget”  which is an express train to Oslo central station.  From there it is a short walk to the bus station.  You can take the Valdres Express bus  From Oslo central to Fagernes Skysstasjon which is about 20min from my house.  The bus is comfortable, has free wifi and takes about 3 hours.  I like taking the bus to Oslo as I can look out the window and see all the waterfalls and dream about ice climbing 🙂
 
Nearly all participants on previous courses have travelled by the above method, and they have described it as straightforward and easy.
