“Scenic adventure!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

When we arrived, we were told that the troll car hire had sold out and had to walk up to the glacier. The walk took roughly around 45mins which may sound time consuming but is actually a very scenic walk. I happened to love walking up and down the beautiful hills and despite the tiring effort, it was definitely worth the walk. When you arrive at the glacier, you immediately start to admire the beauty of Norway's fjords and glaciers. It was absolutely breathtaking!

“Not too hard”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

The glacier can be seen from the road from Olden, a strange translucent blue. There are various options to see the face and you can walk or take a tour by booking in the Lodge.

“Amazingly beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

If you ever the the opportunity to visit then do so. It is beautiful - from the walk up past the waterfall through the national park with wild flowers. Well worth it.

“Great, easy - Briksdal Glacier hike for family of 4”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

Easy with kids. Amazing views. There is a virtually guaranteed rainbow waterfall 1/2 way up. The view of the glacier at the top is lovely with a wide blue-green river/ waterfall area - complete with glacier ice floating in it!

“Stunning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

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.
