play button 40 Video Glacierguiding


You will be roped up, and walk leisurely with crampons and ice axe along deep blue crevasses and high ice towers. Sometimes you can even crawl through some ice tunnels.

Some part of the route climbs quite steep up and down, which is made easier by steps in the ice. The participants should be reasonably sure-footed. For people without any hiking experience on mountain trails the trip can be exhausting.


This hike is suitable for all who want to experience, during a short hike, what glacier hiking really is like.

The exhibition at Breheimsenteret is included (does not apply to groups).
