We have visited many glaciers. This one was recommended by the Hotel Alexander to visit, rather than the over run touristy Burstall. It exceeded our expectations with it’s narrow winding road that was always along the fjord, the old Loen townsite & historic memorial, a...More

This glacier is fairly small but is very beautiful. It now just hangs at the top of the valley, glowing blue in the sunshine, It has receded quite a lot in the past 10 years. Seeing the amount of meltwater gushing out I am not...More

(English text at bottom). Ein av fleire stader å oppleve Jostedalsbreen på nært hald. Spesiell atmosfære i dalbotnen, omgitt av høge fjell. Turen med bil langs Lovatnet eller med båt på Lovatnet gir ei mektig og magisk oppleving, med flotte fjell, fossar, brear, dramatisk historie...More

a fantastic place, fast flowing river to walk along side on your walk up to the glacier, some lovely small bridges to cross, mind the trolls, path is quite rocky, and narrow though comfortable walking a must

Avoid the crowds and go to this glacier specifically. The ride there is almost as fun as the beauty of the glacier. You can drive up to the glacier and hike a bit more to see some of the creeks and get a bit closer....More

To get here you drive the road around lovatnet right to the end. You will have to pay the toll which is 40 Kroners for a car. When you get to the end of the road you park and take a short walk (very easy...More

The beaten track being Briksdal glacier. Kjenndalsbreen is quiet, and pristine. We encountered only one other family while there and this when two mega ships were in Olden port! The beauty is raw and untouched. The walk to near the glacier is also very easy-...More
