Walk the blue ice of Nigardsbreen Glacier, one of the most accessible glaciers in Norway and part of a national park. The walk with a proper guide provides an opportunity to step inside the glacier, entering into its crater through a small cave. Across the glacier lies a glacial lake and, further down, the river delta. Bring good shoes, warm clothes, sunglasses, sunscreen, and plenty of water.

  • Who travels to Norway should look at necessarily a glacier. The best course with guide! Here the Nigardsbreen is glacier. It held several daily tours of varying degrees of difficulty. I had booked the blue ice 4-hour tour. The car park is within easy reach. The equipment is very nice in good condition, the leader, with a very good knowledge and provide therefore a sense of security. Wrap up warm things necessarily even in summer. On the glacier, it can become quite cool. And footwear is mandatory, of course. It is an impressive nature, actually lots of blue ice.

  • The day before, I was visiting another glacier, I thought I'd seen the thing the more game that have ever me see. Then, I came to the Nigardsbreen. What a slap. The arrival in the Valley, the glacier is breathtaking. Once at his feet, everything feels tiny. That nature is beautiful. It's a shame that our fault these wonderful places are endangered. In short, to live.

  • We are within an hour from the car park to the Glacier hiking. The walk seemed in the beginning just scrambling, but is to do very well. The hiking on the glacier we found what to expensive but the hike (round trip) to the glacier was already stunning. The boat do you really not necessary unless you have small children or infirm. We found a great experience!
