From beginners to pros, the Ice Factor’s got climbing experiences to suit everyone. They host everything from aerial adventures, to Mountain Rescue training courses. And the highly qualified, skilled instructors will make sure you get your money’s worth.
If you’re already a keen mountain climber but would like to develop some ice climbing skills, the instructors will be able to show you how. They welcome everyone, and even if it’s your first time climbing they’ll show you how to get started.
There are both indoor and outdoor adventures so if you want to take it to the mountains, you can. It’s a great feature for a country with a climate that’s so unpredictable. And it’s fantastic for gaining invaluable mountaineering skills.
Their café is full of tasty treats too with loads of cakes and bites to top up the energy levels after a challenging climb. Or their bar and grill is the spot for sampling some hearty local meals and winding down with a drink after your adventure.
If scaling the walls really isn’t your thing, the guys at Ice Factor have got you covered. Whether that’s sitting back with a pint at the bar, relaxing in the steam room, or having fun in the soft play – but we highly recommend you give the climbing a try.
It’s not all vertical challenges and real mountain experiences, there are much simpler angled snow-slopes too, that’ll really work up your appetite.
