Blue Ice Hike

Glacier guiding Nigardsbreen: Long Blue Ice Hike

Experience with our guide team the giant blue ice world of the NIGARDSBREEN Glacier nearby the Sognefjord 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.

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.

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