Description

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

Enjoy a truly unique half-day excursion through stunning countryside, starting with a drive along the Nordfjord, the sixth longest in Norway, before continuing up the Kjenndalen Valley, to the trailhead for Kjenndalen Glacier.

The glacier is situated in the Jostedalsbreen National Park, and is home to the largest ice sheet in mainland Europe. Stretching over 37 miles in length, it is divided into three major arms, and is over 1,312 feet deep at certain points. You will then enjoy a quick, easy hike through this wonderful landscape that leads to the face of the glacier, which you will notice is an intense blue-green color. Hiking boots and a rainproof jacket are recommended.

After hiking to the glacier, you will then stop for coffee or tea, accompanied by delicious pastries at the delightful Kjenndalen Mountain Lodge.

Afterwards, you and your party will head to the stunning Lake Lovatn, where you will board a small motor boat for a once-in-a-lifetime twelve mile cruise along the lake's turquoise waters. You guide will explain to you how the lake's waters have been colored by clays washed down from Kjenndalen Glacier.

After your cruise, you will head back to Olden through more stunning Norwegian countryside, a truly magnificent experience.
