Each these instructed lessons lasts between 1 hour and 1.5 hours.Consistently, our most popular courses are the Half Day Adventure and the Full Day Adventure. These Adventure Bundles allow you to try a range of adventure activities in a single visit.Our daily instructed taster sessions have proven hugely popular with visitors to the West Highlands and for that reason Ice Factor constantly ranks in the top 5 things to do the highlands.When the weather gets bad (it can occasionally rain in the highlands of Scotland!) or the midges attack, then our indoor activities and facilities are up there with the very best. You’ll find everyone from some of the world’s top climbers to mum and dad with two kids enjoying the activities and atmosphere at Ice Factor.Visitors routinely travel from Oban (50 mins to the South), Fort William (30 mins to the North) and Mallaig (1 hour to the West), and on wet / stormy days Ice Factor can be extremely busy, so please pre-book to avoid disappointment!Since launch Ice Factor has probably taught more people how to ice climb than any organisation on the planet! From introducing newcomers to the joy of climbing and the outdoors, helping existing outdoor enthusiasts improve their mountain skills and training and developing climbing and mountaineering instructors.
