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.
Do not wear a lot of jumpers on this climb as this is one the you cannot miss and it gets pritty warm walking up, There is a steep climb on the first bit then you are met with a magnificent waterfall. Take the stairs...More
Disembarking at Olden port from my cruise ship i decided to take an independent tour to the Briksdal glacier and Jostedalsbreen national park about a 45 min trip,.The trip to the mountain lodge where the tour bus stops is it's self worth the money with...More
What a sight, I was a bit apprehensive about this tour, thinking it was not going to be as spectacular as it was. We took a bus supplied from the ship, and met with the Troll cars at the bottom of the mountain. We got...More

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.

Hi because of the transport issues we decided to book with the cruise, they don’t rush the tour, and at least your insured ie lateness back to the boat etc. I think transport is going to be your main issue, I do know that when we got off of the ship there were taxis etc waiting to take you, but you would then have to negotiate a price, and I’m not sure how it would work with the Troll cars. I’m sorry I can’t be more helpful but hope you can take something from this. Have a wonderful trip it’s amazing !
