Arctic Ice Festival

Welcome to the Arctic Ice Festival - the ultimate winter experience under the northern lights!

Climbing ice and skiing in the most northern hemisphere is spectacular for many reasons: The far North of Norway is the land of ice and snow and the arctic nature is vast, strong and majestic. Harsh conditions are interwoven with breath taking beauty. Steep rock-faces rise from sparkling blue seas, ridges and mountains are cloaked in shimmering snow. Gleaming ice falls are rising up everywhere towards the arctic sky. Troms lies in the auroral zone and the stunning northern lights can be experienced throughout the whole winter.
