The glaciated area of the Jostedalsbreen with its many glacier tongues is not only a feast for the eyes, but also ideally suited to take the first steps with crampons on blue ice and to learn all necessary security devices for safe traveling on glaciers.
The participants will learn how to use crampons, ice axe and rope, crevasse rescue and everything else necessary for safely passing glaciers.
Further topics of this course week are: Tour planning, map and compass, meteorology, materials science as well as the assessment of alpine dangers.
After completing this course, you will be able to independently tackle glacier hikes, without a guide. You will be able to reach glacier areas that have been previously closed to you.
