Great tour guides with a sense of humor, a pace to match any group, and gorgeous views! Cramp-ons and pick axes provided!

We took a bus from Sogndal to the glacier hike. We, including my 74 year old grandpa, did the 2 hour blue ice hike. The hike was supposed to leave at 11:45 and we were told it would take 3 and a half hours total (2 hours on the ice). It got started a little late, no big deal. The... More

Swimming in the lake was extremely cold he he. Go see this place for yourself in may. I think that is the best time of the year to go there.

We drove to the Nigardsbreen glacier from Gaupne took us about an hour. When we arrived we knew the centre would be closed but so was the road leading up to the glacier! - it was still covered heavily in snow. So we got wrapped up and started a snow walk along the road. It was great fun both children... More

From the parking lot you can take the boat or walk. I recommend to walk and take the boat back, because this was the most beautiful walk I ever took. It's stunning walking over the stones, all the time seeing the lake and the glacier, the glacier gradually coming closer. Be careful, though, the walk isn't supereasy and you should... More

The Nigardsbreen glacier is an arm of the Jostedalsbreen glacier; and the walk was spectacular. Our guides name was Sigfrieda, she was THE BEST. We were not originally hiking this glacier but rather a different one, a more moderate hike with Ice Trolls. We meet at the appointed time on the scheduled date at the guide center at the head...

The Nigardsbreen glacier is a narrow branch, running out from the main glacier Jostedalsbreen. We were divided in groups with different difficulties and length of the walk on the galcier according to our fitness and wishes. All were equipped with... More

This was one of the real highlights of our two weeks in Norway. First of all, the drive up to the park is beautiful -- the water around you is bright turquoise, and in and of itself, was beautiful to see. We took the 2 hour guided hike, which is the middle ground between the 1 hour family hike (recommended... More

I wish I had more time to explore the glacier, have a guided walk over it and see it closer. I just had a couple of hours available, so I drove straight to the glacier from Hafslo where I was staying. After 1 hour drive on a very beautiful road along a river of amazing colours and strong current, I... More
