Height Requirements and weight limit

Weight limit: 120 kg

All children under the age of 6 must be accompanied by an adult in the orange and green courses.

All children under the age of 10 must be accompanied by an adult in the blue and red courses.

Max. 3 children per adult.

Children under the age of 12 must have an adult present in the park at all time.

Purchase Tickets

You can easily purchase tickets online before arrival.  When you arrive at the park, just bring your receipt.

Safety & Training

Safety is one of our main concerns at Høyt & Lavt Climbing Park. The park is annually inspected and is authorized 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.

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

We serve ice cream, soft drinks and assorted snacks.

In Blaafarveværkets opening season, we recommend to go there to buy lunch or dinner.

You may also bring your own food and drinks. Our central courtyard has ample seating and there is a designated grilling area.

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