It was an unforgettable experience for me as it was the first time of me to walk on ice, The ice was blue. It was sad when I looked at the photo in 70s, the glacier actually decreased a lot on its size. The global warming is serious.

We arrived at the car park late in the afternoon and it was drizzling:-( The glacier looked so beautiful even from here. We walked the track into the glacier face.

Guided hikes for many people. Our group, all roped together, exceeded 16. Once you are on the glacier, you do not see many other groups, but otherwise the popularity is evident. You can go quite close to the glacier but not on it. To go on the glacier, you must take a "glacier tour".

Glaciers are always impressive to see. At Nirgardsbreen glacier you can come really close to the glacier and you can also take part at organized glacier hikes. For reaching the Nigardsbreen you have to take the toll road which starts near the Jostedalsbreen Information Center. The road stops at the parking place. From here you can walk the trail to... More

The path to go there is lovely and not boringly straight so we take pleasure just for that, and there this gorgeous view, this strong iced water descending... not too much tourist around, that keeps all the happiness to see this... (compared to briksdal golfcar and so on!!)

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
