Nigardsbreen Glacier, Luster

Walk the blue ice of Nigardsbreen Glacier, one of the most accessible glaciers in Norway and part of a national park. The walk with a proper guide provides an opportunity to step inside the glacier, entering into its crater through a small cave. Across the glacier lies a glacial lake and, further down, the river delta. Bring good shoes, warm clothes, sunglasses, sunscreen, and plenty of water.

  • It would be possible to go to the foot of Nigardsbreen on December by your own? Some company who do trekking or something like this on winter there?  more »
  • impressive glacier, great place to visit
  • With 2 kids (4 and 6 years old) we took about an hour to reach the view point from the carpark. The walk is challenging for family, but definitely is doable. It costs 80 NOK to access the car park, only accepts coins or credit card. I saw many people signed up for glacier walk, my husband and I were interested but my kids are not qualified for the min age of 8. We took the boat to return from mid-point because my younger is too tired from walk. But I see many kids completed the route. The view is breathtaking and I am glad the I could see the glacier in my Norway trip!
