Visited Briksdal on a cruise ship coach tour which took in the stunning Olden valley before dropping us off at the car park for the glacier. The glacier is a 45 minute walk, through beautiful landscape, most of which is on an incline. There are troll cars available to drive most of the way for additional cost but the walk really adds to the sense of achievement and can be done by pretty much anyone except the elderly or infirm, you just might need longer if unused to exercise. We took about 50 mins, including photo stops.
The views along the walk are awesome and do include crossing a bridge past a torrential river drop. We were pretty much instantly soaked but dried out along the walk. Definitely bring a waterproof jacket.
The glacier itself is a beautiful sight, you can just about see the icefield above and the glacier arm coming down the mountain. Slope towards you where it connects to a large glacial lake. The mountains surrounding you are streaming with water and waterfalls. It is a truly emotional experience to be there and, if the wheat her is nicer, you could stay and look for hours. We were fairly wet and windswept.
Before you leave add a stone to one of the many columns of rocks and pebbles that previous visitors have left, or add a new one of your own.
