  • We did this hike organized by costa crociere. A truly unique experience. We arrived by bus at the beginning of the walk which passes through spectacular places, imposing waterfalls (bring your raincoats because otherwise you'll wet for splashing!!!). In an hour you arrive comfortably to the half with stops for pictures. There is an initial part more difficult, then a flat part towards the glacier. For those who can't make it to walk there are trolls that lead until 10 minutes from the goal. A word of advice: don't take the tours organized by the ships: the harbour there's a bus that takes you to the trailhead and awaits the return by spending enormously less!

  • Wasn't disappointed with the glazier. Part steep but mainly a gradual climb up if not going by troll car. Get a sense of being pretty close to the blueish ice perky top. Worth the walk. Toilet up top ...  more »
  • This glacier is an arm of the Jostedalsbreen glacier the largest glacier of continental Europe. The walk is easy but if you are mountain enthusiasts or walkers some solitaire games you might dislike the crowded path and style a bit touristy. The view is definitely worth with its waterfalls and fascinating sights. The glacier can be reached (Although physically not fair) in less than an hour's walk is not binding. A shuttle service with car (golf sort) also with 25 euros per person door almost at target who doesn't feel like (or may not) walk. It is a place that definitely deserves a visit however I was also with the curiosity to explore some other path that leads to another arm of this glacier so impressive (the Jostedalsbreen)
