  • Quite impressive to something alive to see that as old is. We are not on the glacier gone, although that can. The walk from the parking lot to the glacier requires a baar healthy physical state.

  • We have walked down the walk to the glacier. Good to do, but not a "easy family walk". The path is about rocks and stones, which were sometimes steep and smooth.

  • Ok, maybe I exaggerated a bit with the title - but for our family it was the top attraction on a 9 day visit to Norway. We had planned to visit the Nigardbreen and skipped the Briksdal Glacier the day...  more »

  • Natural glacier, adventure if you have proper shoes clothes and gears, you can walk inside. For water taxi payment in cash only.
  • Absolutely stunning view.
  • Very worth it. Pretty easy walk from an hour to the ice. Furthermore, you may not. Very beautiful!

  • A gorgeous hike up the glacier. Mostly it was easy but something party was a little knixigt. The wizard did not say as much but talked more when asked questions. He had climbed Mount Everest and subsisted here the rest of the year. An experience, for sure.

  • Absolutely worth seeing! Thanks to cope with a shuttle boat for everyone. From the visitor center you can either directly run to approx. 45 min shorten the tour or use the toll road to the jetty.
