Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

After boarding your bus at Olden pier, you will head out of town, soaking up the stunning scenery along Olden Lake, to the pretty town of Rustoen. Here, you will ascend the Olden Valley, passing small farms, numerous waterfalls and the glorious Melkevoll Glacier before disembarking at the picturesque Briksdal Inn.

Accompanied by your guide, you will then enjoy a hike to the magnificent Briksdal Glacier, which is situated in Jostedalsbreen National Park, and flows over 3,937 feet down the mountainside into the Briksdal Valley.

During your 45-minute guided hike to the glacier (total hiking time of 90 minutes round-trip) you will be able to fully enjoy a unique view of this pristine and wild scenery. Comfortable and sturdy walking shoes, or hiking boots are required, and you should also bring a warm sweater. Depending on availability, electric buggies may be hired for an additional fee to take you within a ten-minute walk of the glacier.

After hiking up to this immense and beautiful glacier, you will be able to take the weight off your feet and enjoy complimentary pastries, with coffee or tea, at the scenic Briksdal Inn, before heading back to the ship.

Special Notes:

Wear comfortable, sturdy walking shoes or hiking boots and bring a warm sweater. Depending on availability, electric buggies may be hired for an additional fee to take you within a 10-minute walk of the glacier.
