Acrophobics beware: this is not for those with a fear of heights. Those who don't, however, will just love the icy adrenaline high of climbing the mountains in the Rjukan area of southern Norway. One of the world's best terrains for ice climbing, Rjukan attracts adventurers from all around the world. Kitted out in crampons and an ice axe, people fight their way up frozen waterfalls, snow and ice in a constant struggle against their own exhaustion and the dizzying heights. While this experience may not suit everyone's tastes, those with an addiction for that which is unique are certain to find it unforgettable.
