  • We’ve booked online this short hike on the Nigarsbreen glacier in January and some options ( hours ) are unavailable at that time. Most important is wear alpine boot, thermal coat and gloves. Moreover...  more »
  • Lovely and charming place. The entrance fee, so in such beautiful circumstances of nature would be a sin. Trzykilometrowy walk around the asphalt takes 45 minutes one way. On site or you can go ahead more difficult path and after another hour to reach the glacier. Another option is shizu Kana private beach boat-you get the time, you lose the NOKach. If you are staying at a nearby campsite, you can go there in summer, late in the evening even after 20:00-is empty and quiet-pure nature.

  • By Gaupne drives still well 30 km on mostly well-developed roads to the visitor center, then there are only a few km toll road to the parking lot. 50 NOK are toll but OK - hiking along the toll road seems little interesting and also the parking lot is then free of charge. The crossing of the glacier lake (back and forth 60 NOK for adults) is not strictly necessary, you can go on foot - and you should be aware that the small boats take a only a part of the way. From the pier, we continue over hill and Dale (caution: slippery when wet!)-if one has booked a guided tour, you must but not walk up to the glacier tongue, to enjoy a good view of the glacier.

  • 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.
