We paid 150NOK to stay in the car park. We followed well signed posted trail. A 3km hike to the base of the glacier. The climb was strenuous but we are not fit. Saw families with young children... more »
This hike is quite challenging, expect some climbing, but so worth it. The kids (10&12) loved the challenges and the adults enjoyed the view. more »
Very well designed track and entertaining for kids. Physically demanding. Great views of Buarbreen glacier. We decided to change our plans from Trolltunga (too long) to this glacier instead. It was a right decision. Really worth the hike
One of the most beautiful hikes I’ve ever done (and I live in Switzerland where we have so many stunning hikes). This hike doesn’t take long, less than 3 hours if you’re in good shape, and the variety of terrain you see - mountains, glacier, forest, streams, waterfalls - is spectacular. The trail is rocky and steep in parts, requiring use of ropes and ladders to scramble up some of the slopes. You also have to cross a few muddy, wet areas, so be sure to wear good hiking shoes. Enjoy!
