It was actually sad when we passed the sign that stated the glacier was here in the 1920s. It sure has receded!! Glad we walked out to see it and the rushing water from melt. I would recommend this to anyone.

This is a nice, easy hike to a stunning scenery. The drive to the park is also amazing and not stressful compared to some other Norway parks. I would recommend to anyone.

Worth a visit. Beautiful scenery and was still cold in May. Not too crowded when reached the Glacier. Had a bit of taste of the glacier water, very cold and refreshing.

The walk up the mountain was horrificly hard, but the views were spectacular. It was defiantly worth it. You can drink the water from the glacier as it's pure, it is a stunning blue colour. I would recommend if your unfit to use the troll...More

We took the troll car most of the way up, walking the remainder. It was about a 15-20min walk uphill to the glacier. It is a naturally, beautiful spot and well worth visiting. Highly recommended.

An amazing experience and must be visited before global warming takes the last viewable parts. The journey there was as much part of the experience. You don't need to use the troll cars we walked and enjoyed the scenery and fresh air at our pace.
