It is really cool to see the glacier at this close distance, the view alone the hiking trail is beautiful as well. Worth the visit!

On a recent cruise to Norway, we visited the Briksdalsbre glacier, it was such a beautiful site to see, we arrived by coach, such wonderful scenery, we then took the troll cars up and walked up to the glacier

When you hear about this glacier, you expect something really special. However it is disappointing as over the years the glacier has melted so there isnt so much to see,

Arriving at this special glacier, one can only notice the lack of tourists, at the end of the season. But, with this time late in the season the views are very special, well worth the visit.

At our sixth day (22 Sept 2019) of our Scadinavian Tour we were off to Briksdalsbreen. It is one of the most accessible and best known arms of the Jostedalsbreen glacier. We took a special car up the mountain road. It was chilly and best...More

You can either take a 45 minute walk to the glacier or get taken up in a troll car, which is a bit like a golf buggy. We saw so much more by walking, even though the weather was wet and cold. You have to...More

If you are physically able to walk down, I'd suggest doing the walk up as well and not deal with the hassle and expense of a troll car. It is not a difficult hike and is paved all but the last few hundred meters (which... More
