This is a must see location, beautiful lake, great walk up to the glacier. Ice hikes though I had mixed feelings about, very busy, lots of time waiting and not one hundred percent sure it's safe for kids.

Ok, maybe I exaggerated a bit with the title - but for our family it was the top attraction on a 9 day visit to Norway. We had planned to visit the Nigardbreen and skipped the Briksdal Glacier the day before. On the evening before,...More

We took the long blue-ice hike (ca. 5 hours). The hike itself is not very challenging if you have a moderate fitness-level. Our guide (Nepalese sherpa) took quite some breaks and didn't have a fast walking pace. Given we booked the long tour we had...More
