Ice climbing is popular as a recreational activity and as part of the techniques for summiting a mountain. It is even possible to ice climb on indoor ice walls. The sport is highly technical and a lot of equipment is required such as ice axes, crampons and suitable clothing.
Protectivity ice climbing insurance is available to UK and Irish residents taking part in the activity in their home country or abroad. Our Sports Accident Insurance offers such benefits as income protection and personal accident cover and protects people climbing in their home country, whilst our Sports Travel Insurance combines cover for ice climbing with travel insurance.

How it works
As a sports insurance specialist, we understand the risks when participating in sport abroad, with over 20 years experience we are able to offer a sports travel insurance with the benefits our customers want, at an affordable price.
The sports and activities we cover are separated into seven sports groups. When you select a sport you will be covered for that sport, all other sports in the same sports group and those in lower groups. Our Sports Travel Insurance gives you the flexibility to travel knowing you are covered for not only your main activity but hundreds more. Our Sports Travel Insurance is like any other travel insurance policy, with one difference, we can insure over 400 sports and activities, so as well as being covered for lost baggage, travel delays or illness we’ll cover you for injuries or accidents resulting from participating in sport.
|Medical Expenses & Repatriation||Reasonable hospital, medical and other expenses, whilst abroad, following accidental bodily injury, illness, or death during a trip. Includes emergency repatriation back to your home country on medical advice or due to serious accident, illness or death of a close relative or business partner.|
|Personal Liability||Covering your legal liability resulting from accidents causing death, bodily injury or property damage to a third party.|
|Baggage and Personal Effects||Loss of or damage to your personal baggage provided you take proper care to safeguard your property at all times.
