This hike is designed for adults and children from the age of 8 years who would like to get a glimpse of the beauty of the deep blue ice on the Nigardsbreen Glacier.
Please note that the path to the glacier and the route on the glacier itself is quite steep this year and although this blue ice walk is shorter than all the others, the technical difficult level remains the same. Therefore you need outdoor experience, a good balance and medium fitness.
The exhibition at Breheimsenteret (the National Park Visitor Centre) is included (does not apply to groups).
