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...

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.

Short hike just before the glacier. The view was beautiful 😍
From the parking lot you get your first glimpse of the glacier. Parking cost 150NOK a day and you pay by credit card when leaving. From the parking lot you follow a marked path. Take your time and enjoy the beautiful scenery, the walk is as much of the event as the glacier itself. The trip is close to 3 km one way, and with normal walking speed you will use 3-4 hours in total. Most of the time you walk on rocks and boulders and there are also some parts where you need to use the fixed ropes to climb or rappel. No climbing experience or equipment is needed, but you would benefit from having good leg and arm strength. Good hiking shoes are required, and don't forget to bring warm clothes as you end up 650 meters higher than you started and cold winds from the glacier pours down the valley. You won’t be able to walk on the glacier itself as a meltwater river stream at the base blocks your way. Enjoy!
