Safety & Training

Safety is one of our main concerns at Høyt & Lavt Climbing Park. The park is annually inspected by the Norwegian Railway Authority. We also frequently perform internal controls of the operation, and have several internal routines in place, so that you can feel safe at the park.

If you are going to partake in any activities or use our climbing courses, you must go through our mandatory safety course. You may experience some waiting time on busy days. Please listen to your instructor to make the wait as short as possible for yourself and others.

Please note that the mandatory course must be completed at least once per season.

NB! The ticket sale and safety training closes 1,5 hours before we close the climbing courses. Check our opening hours here.

Weather & Clothes

We recommend that you wear sports/fitness clothing or light hiking gear when you are going climbing in our park. As you will be staying active you might want to wear several layers, so you can take some off as your temperature rises. We recommend you bring a small backpack with a light change of clothes. Running or hiking shoes with a solid sole are preferred.

In case of rain, we recommend you bring some light waterproof clothing with you. Please note that there can be resin in the trees.

We do not recommend you wear clothing with any strings or cords on to our climbing course.

Food & Drinks

Our café, operated by Kjærratunet, is open during regular opening hours. It serves both hot and cold meals as well as ice cream, soft drinks and assorted snacks.

You may also bring your own food and drinks. Our central courtyard has ample seating and there is a designated grilling area. The grills are available for rent, including coal and lighter fluid.

Please note that you may not bring your own one-time grill (engangsgrill) to our park, due to the fire hazard.

We offer accommodation for companies and large groups. You can either stay in one of our two lean-to’s, with a capacity of 30 guests each, or bring your own tent.

Families wanting to stay at our park can do so nearby at Kjærra Waterfalls Park. We also have a collaboration with Farris Bad in Larvik.

Absolutely! But please note that children under the age of 6 must be accompanied by an adult in the Green courses. Children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult in the Blue, Red and Black courses. We recommend a minimum of 1 adult per 3 children.

Anyone who will be taking part in our activities or using our climbing course must fill out our waiver form, where you agree to behave according to our safety policies. Persons under the age of 18 must have an adult supervisor sign the form for them.

You can either sign the form online or upon arrival. We are unable to let guests who don’t sign the waiver access the climbing courses and activities.

- What kind of training will I receive?

If you are going to partake in any activities or using our climbing courses, you must go through our mandatory safety course. You may experience some waiting time on busy days. Please listen to your instructor to make the wait as short as possible for yourself and others.

Please note that the mandatory course must be completed at least once per season.

- Is there an endless capacity of guests in the park?

Unfortunately, no. We can only maintain a set number of guests on our climbing courses. There is a limited number of harnesses available, and when these are in use no more guests are allowed onto the courses.

If there are no harnesses available, you must wait.

No. You don’t have to buy a ticket if you won’t be going on to the courses. The area around our park is a superb hiking area, with many marked paths for you to enjoy the wonderful nature.

- Can I bring my own food?

Absolutely! There is ample seating available and a separate grilling area. Please note that you may not bring your own coal or one-time grill (engangsgrill), as it is a fire hazard. Due to forest fire hazard, the barbecues might be closed temporarily.
