  • Very beautiful glacier! The boat however was closed. We had to hike approximately 3.5 hours to the glacier, and then 3.5 hours back. It was however worth it!

  • It was great to return to the Svartisen after 27 years - still very impressive although shrunken a little because of climate change. The Austerdalsisen can only be reached by boat and a 1 hour hike...

  • The road to Austerdalsisen was not easy. We stumbled across fallen trunks and branches, skipping streams (later we went through them)... They only gave up our trekking boots and a third of the calves that mercilessly drowned the local swamps. The forest is over and the terrain has changed. We started (about another 3 km to the finish) to climb the rocky surface. On the left we passed massive rapids and waterfalls running down the glacial lake. We realized how we were against the natural forces of the raspberries and helpless… and we didn't know what would follow in this untouched wilderness. We continued (hopping) on ​​the red-colored rock formations… an unreal landscape once covered by a glacier. We got to Lake Austerdalsvatnet. Here the tongue of the glacier showed us in full beauty. We have reached the runway Austerdalsisen. I can't describe the feeling we were experiencing. The gentlemen pulled Tulamorka (blééé, I don't normally drink it) and scraped some ice from the iceberg into the shots. We tapped and looked at the huge, multicolored mass with complete humility.
