Get a glimpse what glacier hiking is really like

This hike is designed for adults and children from the age of 8 years old 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 difficulty level remains the same. Therefore you need outdoor experience, good balance, and medium fitness.

What to Bring

Gloves, warm and wind-/waterproof clothing, sunglasses, gloves, some snacks and solid shoes (trekking boots or sport shoes). The clothing must cover the whole body (no shorts or skirts without leggings).

Start time for private hikes

Upon request. For start times between 09:45 – 13:30, the transportation on the glacier boat t/r is included in the price. Otherwise, you have to walk by foot from the glacier and back to the car park. Duration is about 1,5 hours (each way).
