4x4 Polar expedition to the North of Norway with visiting of Lofoten islands with active modules - iceclimbing and mountain skiing.

The MCS AlexClimb School team invites you to take part in our traditional annual program - a trip through winter Norway, which we organize on our off-road vehicles in March 2018. This program is different from most of our programs, since the thematic elements on which we specialize (mountaineering and iceclimbing), are included in this route solely for informational and entertainment purposes. This program is not intended to solve training tasks and does not represent an interest for climbing athletes focused on their own sporting goals. This trip is a combination of a fantastically beautiful route to the most inaccessible areas of Norway, including the famous Lofoten islands and two activities that are quite typical for winter Norway: ice climbing and downhill skiing.

This route, as it were, is collected from the most vivid and incredible pictures that many of us have dreamed of since childhood, but could not believe in them in a way that they become a reality ... Imagine the North Sea, which shines at night with all the colors of the reflection of the brightest Aurora Borealis, the steep cliffs of famous fjords crowned with snow crowns, the cozy warmth of lodging in traditional Norwegian wooden houses, the serpentine roads along the spider webs of bridges connecting the tiny islands of the Lofoten archipelago. Add to this the picture of yourself, in the crew of a real expedition jeep, or skiing on the mountain side on fresh powder snow, or with an ice ax and crampones conquering the ringing vertical of a frozen waterfall ... If you let your fantasy go a little, the picture will turn out as if in reality - short 12 days, in which we tried to fit a whole world of harmony with nature and joy from an active and lively program.

The total length of the automobile route is 3200 km, starting from Oslo, where participants arrive by plane, and ending in Murmansk (Russia), where you can fly away after 12 days of continuous change of scenery, incredible landscapes of the polar archipelago, colorful shimmering of the northern lights and warm friendly atmosphere of this expedition.

Participants are invited to participate in the polar expedition to the north of Norway with a visit to the Lofoten Islands, regardless of the level of their initional training. The program of this trip is combined - a very beautiful expedition route, where you will have the opportunity to try your hand at two popular sports in Norway - mountain skiing and ice climbing on frozen waterfalls.

This 12-day program is designed for people who do not have any prior climbing or expeditional experience and who want to get acquainted with the nature and culture of Norway through the prism of this expedition and in addition to get basic skills of climbing on ice and working with iceclimbing equipment. The program can be interesting for a wide range of active lifestyle lovers, of the people attached to the mountain adventures, mountaineering, climbing and winter sports

Our Principles

AlexClimb Rule #1 - Safety First

From the very beginning of our activity, here nearly 16 years, the first Principle of work of School of mountaineering and rock-climbing of MCS AlexClimb is the Safety Priority. On the basis of this Principle all process of training is based, all programs and rounds are developed and carried out only within this main principle. We consider that at professional approach to development of programs, at personal discipline and correctly put motivation - occupations by mountaineering and rock-climbing are COMPLETELY safe. And from the return - all troubles and accidents in our sport come from nonprofessionalism, from ignorance or neglect by elementary standards of safety, from irrational motivation, from revaluation of own forces and opportunities. All these prerequisites we COMPLETELY EXCLUDE in our work - ours Rock-climbing, Ice climbing and Mountaineering are based on one Principle - the Safety Priority. In rock-climbing, mountaineering and ice climbing, the Priority of Safety of MCS AlexClimb-is your personal security and comfort irrespective of, than we are engaged - we train muscles and we work technology of the movement in the sports hall and on the rock climbing wall, we make the way through snowstorm to top or we relax on golden sand of the Caribbean beach after hot day of trainings on rocks. The Safety priority - the main credo of School of mountaineering and rock-climbing of MCS AlexClimb.

AlexClimb Rule #2 - Leave No Trace

Closely interacting with Nature, working with the active programs in mountains, woods, lakes and rivers, we perfectly understand the importance of carefull and respectfull bahavior towards the Nature, for its resources. From the very beginning of our outdoor-activity we adopted rules of  Leave No Trace technique - the standard of behavior of the person accepted in all the civilized world in relation to environment and especially - to the wild nature. After all on the relation of people to the nature near which they exist, itself can draw dalekoidushchy conclusions on the relation of these people to... Where and as we didn't travel - we don't reserve any garbage, we try to reduce whenever possible our influence on environment to a minimum. We clear earlier zagryazyonny tourist parking of the left garbage, we take out and we take out to utilization places that to us other people left there. We consider that only thus, at personal individual consciousness of each citizen, each tourist, climber or autotraveller, we will be able to keep the nature surrounding us in its state, natural, suitable for life, - in it pledge of the healthy future for ourselves and our children.

AlexClimb Rule #3 - Sober Concious

The position of AlexClimb Mountain and rockclimbing School regarding healthy lifestyle is quite clear - we consider that only sober consciousness is capable to fill sincere emotions,  to sympathize, to enjoy life in all its variety. Bright various enjoyable life is possible only on condition of keeping the absolute sobriety and purity of consciousness. Any way of obscuring our perception of reality is intended to do harm to our consciousness and bring harm to our physical health, to replace the true values by false ones, to destroy us physically - to turn us into flabby, weak, senseless, gray herd with empty hazy eyes. We don't force anybody to our point of view, everyone has a God's gift of making his own choice and to destroy himself if that is what he wants... But in AlexCilimb Mountain Climbing School we accept quite certain and very simple set of rules: neither alcohol, nor drugs.
