Glacier guiding Nigardsbreen: Long Blue Ice Hike

Experience with our mountain/glacier guides the giant blue ice world of the NIGARDSBREEN Glacier nearby the Sognefjord on a glacier hike and learn about the exciting nature of the Jostedalsglacier. The trip is long enough to seek out some of the most impressive areas of the blue ice landscape.

Discover the power of nature and learn how to use crampons and ice axe, visit ice caves, impressive ice towers and deep blue crevasses. Learn all about the formative power of a glacier. An experience you never will forget!

This glacier hike is more demanding than the Short Blue Ice Hike. The route passes through some more challenging and steeper parts of the glacier and as a reward you get a great view of the snow covered Jostedalsbreen and the upper part of Nigardsbreen.
