  • The road to get there is very beautiful. We could not go to the glacier on foot because of the snow but the little that we could do was fabulous. There was nobody, just the stream, the forest and we. We will return in the summer.

  • We did this hike in heavy run and it was still worth it though it was a bit slippery, especially on the ferratas.  more »

  • Awesome, sometimes challenging walk to the glacier. I had imagined the the glacier will be bigger, but from the place where it is safe to look at it it seems small an far away.
  • From the parking lot you get your first glimpse of the glacier. Parking cost 150NOK a day and you pay by credit card when leaving. From the parking lot you follow a marked path. Take your time and enjoy the beautiful scenery, the walk is as much of the event as the glacier itself. The trip is close to 3 km one way, and with normal walking speed you will use 3-4 hours in total. Most of the time you walk on rocks and boulders and there are also some parts where you need to use the fixed ropes to climb or rappel. No climbing experience or equipment is needed, but you would benefit from having good leg and arm strength. Good hiking shoes are required, and don't forget to bring warm clothes as you end up 650 meters higher than you started and cold winds from the glacier pours down the valley. You won’t be able to walk on the glacier itself as a meltwater river stream at the base blocks your way. Enjoy!
  • We went to ODDA and the underlying campsite, as we had planned the trip to the Buarbreen glacier the next day. After the campsite the road to the starting point of the hike only for small cars is suitable for use as 2 m but which is in a travel guide, nor anywhere else, until it is on the verge... Already we stood with our RV a stupid. The tourist information gave us the number of a taxi company, what would have ramped up a route tourists for 100 Crowns... It was just too naughty to spend 800 crowns or €80 for a few kilometres taxi for us as a family of 4. It would have been 6 km from the campsite to the starting point, but also which was us then altogether too much, so we had to go back disappointed... May be for people with a small car a super nice Wanderort though, we felt just rip you off but in ODDA.
