Icetroll starts the season here on Nigardsbrevatnet (lake) in Jostedal in the first week of May. The lake sits in front of the glacier, separated by about 900 metres of hillside.

The tour begins with a short kayak trip of 30 minutes over this idyllic lake, providing perfect photo opportunities and a chance to try kayaking in Norway in perfect glacial surroundings.

Once we are on the other side of the lake, we have a walk to the ice (approx 30 mins). On the walk up to the glacier, the guide will explain glaciers, how they work, where they have been and local history. Once at the glacier, we put on the crampons and rope for the glacier walk and spend two hours exploring the glacier at our leisure.

We meet at the Breheimsenter for this tour. You follow the Icetroll vehicle to the lake and on the way there is a toll of 90kr, to be aware of. They accept cards or coins.

This kayak and glacier hike tour is perfect for families who visit in May/June until we begin tours on Styggevatnet in July. Then you have an option to take the Motorboat & Glacier Tour on Styggevatnet.
