Briksdal Glacier (Briksdalbreen), Stryn

Inspirock Rating:
4.6/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web
Nestled between thunderous waterfalls and high cliffs alongside a small glacial lake, Briksdal Glacier (Briksdalbreen) represents an easily reached arm of continental Europe's largest pancake glacier. Explore the lush valley by foot, taking the paths that lead from the local mountain lodge and follow streams of melting ice cascading down to the sea. Go for a "troll buggy" trip up to the glacier if the ice conditions and the weather allow. Otherwise, opt for a guided glacier safari in a rafting boat on the lake. Tourist-friendly facilities include a restaurant and the area's largest souvenir shop. Be on the lookout for roadblocks--movement of the glacier and the threat of avalanches can make roads dangerous.

  • The glacier that appears to have been smaller in recent years is almost like a secluded gem out against the bright blue letters. Definitely worth a little visit if one is nearby.

  • Before arriving at the glacier you make a walk of a few km away, where you have the chance to admire a fantastic landscape made of green and waterfalls. Arrived at the glacier you can admire the Lake that is formed from it. But you realize even than the glacier has retreated over the centuries. To be preserved.

  • The glacier is very mighty and nice. The road from the main road (24 km) is narrow. The cars don't work all day and than you have to walk about 30 min each way. 
  • Awesome this shrinking Glacier. Even more so if you see the effects of climate change on this glacier.
  • It is owesome n soo beautiful. ...defination of nature.... am mercy from Kenya n visited to see the beauty of Norway. Braaa!
  • The highlight is the drive from Olden and then the carts to the glacier.
  • One of my favourite places I have visited while on holiday with P&O
  • Fascinating nature, the way there is very nice. When we were there a large piece of ice has come loose and is pleased with loud Thunder and ROAR in the glacial Lake. Breathtaking. The Lake has a very nice color.
