Those who want to understand the origin of the fjords must hike to the Briksdal Glacier. This side arm of the mighty Jostedale Glacier shows how the natural forces mould the landscape. And you can walk on the ice.
The Briksdal Glacier is one of the few glaciers in Norway that is relatively easy to reach. The ice mass is part of the Jostedal Glacier National Park, where countless glaciers can be found.
You can go up the ice of the Briksdal glacier with a guide. You get special crampons, also called crampons, so that you have a lot of grip on the glacier. So make sure you have sturdy shoes on, so that the crampons are securely fastened. The guide knows the way and chooses a safe route. Do follow in his footsteps so you don't fall into a crevasse.
It’s a long walk to the glacier’s tongue, but the view makes all the effort worthwhile. And you are allowed to walk on the ice. You will also see the river that starts here. As well as the battle of trees and plants, trying to survive.
