  • The road to Austerdalsisen was not easy. We stumbled over fallen trunks and branches, skipping streams (we passed them later)... They did not give up their targets. Only our trekking shoes and a third of the calves that were mercilessly mired by the local marshs were surruned. The forest ended and the terrain changed. We started (about another 3km to the finish) to climb the rocky surface. On the left we passed massive rapids and waterfalls, flowing from the glacial lake. We have realized how we oppose the natural forces of a tiny and helic... And we still did not know what would follow in this untouched wilderness. We continued (bouncing) on the red-coloured rock formations... The unreal landscape once covered by the glacier. We got to the lake Austerdalsvatnet. Here the tongue of the iceberg showed us in full glory. We arrived to the Austerdalsisen Splazu. I cannot describe the feeling we have experienced. The Gentlemen pulled out tulamork (I don't normally drink it), and they scribbled some ice out of the iceberg into the dolls. We had a full humour and looked at the huge, multicolored mass.
