bio portret

My name is Pawel Karczmarczyk. I’m an internationally certified mountain guide IVBV / UIAGM / IFMGA.

I have created Chillup Guide to share my mountaineering experience with you.

Chillup Guide is based in Norway, however I organize mountain trips all over the world. I specialize in ice climbing, rock climbing, alpine climbing, ski touring and expeditions. My guided tours are customised to suit your individual preferences and abilities. Your safety and enjoyment are my top priorities.

I’ve been climbing since 1998. At  the very beginning I was fascinated with mixed climbing in the Tatra mountains and big wall climbing in central Caucasus. I have spent over 10 of my climbing seasons there. At the moment I am regarded an expert in the field of climbing in the Caucasus Mountains. You can find my publications regarding this topic in some of the most renowned  Polish mountain-climbing magazines. I’ve done numerous 5B classical routes on Caucasus 5000 m and 4000 m mountains. I’ve climbed the Caucasus, Himalaya, Tatra, Alps and Norwegian mountain ranges.

My passion for climbing was quickly followed by the passion for alpine skiing. Since 2007 I’ve lived and worked in Norway, building up my experience in ski trips in the land of fjords and ice climbing on frozen waterfalls.

See you in the mountains!
