Visited while on a cruise. The day we went on the hike up to the glacier it poured with rain but it didn't spoil or dent our enthusiasm. The scenery was fantastic and well worth the effort. The winding path was easily manageable but if you feel you can't walk that far there are Troll cars available at an additional cost. On your return to the car/bus park there is a good gift shop, cafe and ample toilet facilities.

We took an organised tour which took us by coach and then troll car to within 500mtrs of the glacier, still quite a walk but really worthwhile. The scenery was amazing and the ride in the troll car was really fun especially going under the waterfall. We were very fortunate to have a hot sunny day I suspect if it was raining it might not be such a enjoyable experience. But if you enjoy the fantastic views that Norway has to offer then you will not be disappointed.

A great day out while visiting the Norwegian west coast fjords. One can choose to walk up to the glacier from the visitors centre, a 30 minute steep walk, or take one of the many jeep like vehicles that take you almost to the base of the glacier itself. Only a 7 minute leisurely walk to the glacier lake. Be sure to get their early before the tourist buses arrive, because they have group bookings for the vehicles and it was difficult to book vacant seats. Good facilities at the visitors center with a cafe/restaurant and a huge gift shop with high quality souvenirs.

A perfect 4-5 hour day. it's a pleasant 2 mile hike up to the glacier along a raging stream with numerous small drops and different mountain vistas. Take an hour and just enjoy the glacier and watch for calving. Remember, you hear it after it starts to fall!
