To the largest mainland glacier in Europe
The Nigardsbreen glacier slide is part of the largest continental glacier in Europe, the Jostedalsbreen. The hike from the parking lot to the glacier is very low and takes about 2 hours, even with frequent breaks for photography.
The first view of the glacier
The hike starts in the parking lot, from which, in addition to walking, you can get very close to the glacier and on a boat, which runs about every 15 to 30 minutes.
The whole hike passes around the glacial lake Nigardsbrevatnet.
In addition to the hikes, several waterfalls are visible on both sides of the valley, which are significant especially during the spring months.
One of the most beautiful views
At the end of the tour, the glacial shapes of the relief are beautifully visible.
Although the views of the floating pieces of ice are very nice, they mean that the glacier is getting smaller and smaller, at this time it is about 5 meters a year.
Nearest to the glacier
The last place to get in case of this short walk, but you can pay extra for a hike directly to the glacier and walk directly on the glacier.
