THE ICE FACTOR: THE NATIONAL CENTRE FOR ICE CLIMBING AND THE UK’S PREMIER MOUNTAIN ACTIVITY CENTRE
Since opening in 2003, Ice Factor Kinlochleven has become synonymous with action packed adventure and family fun.
A day out here is about living life more adventurously, having fun with friends and family and getting in touch with your inner chimp! Challenge yourself, you will be surprised just how far and how high you can go when our expert instructors coach you.
Whether you’re a gnarly, experienced mountaineer, a foot weary walker off the West Highland Way, a youth group, stag or hen party, or family and friends looking for an amazing day out, Ice Factor is the perfect place to have fun as you practice, train and learn every conceivable mountaineering skill. Or you may simply choose to kick back in Chillers Bar & Grill!
Home of the Biggest Indoor Ice Climbing arena in the World! and with an average of 130,000 annual visitors, we’ve probably introduced more people to the thrill of ice climbing than anywhere on the planet.
Little wonder Ice Factor ranks amongst the Top 5 visitor attractions in the Highlands of Scotland (source: Visit Scotland Tourism Monitor 2007) and is now a must visit attraction for any visitor to the picturesque West Highlands.
At Ice Factor our vision and daily mission is to make adventure sports universally accessible and fun you may say the democratization of adventure! So, part of our giant indoor (partly frozen) toy box includes the world’s biggest indoor ice climbing wall, the UK’s highest/articulated overhanging rock climbing wall and a world class dedicated teaching and instruction facility.
Whether a regular visitor or experiencing our world class facility for the first time, our highly qualified and incredible staff are on hand 7 days a week to teach you the core skills and to ensure your safety.
