Boat on the water, with Nigardsbreen glacier in the background.

Join the guided hike to Nigardsbreen!

On your way to the starting point by Nigardsbreen’s glacial lake, you will drive through a moraine landscape that was formed during the so-called Little Ice Age. From the Nigardsbreen car park, we will take the local boat for a round trip on the green glacial lake. We will then proceed to the recently ice-free landscape in front of the glacier. At the viewpoint itself we will take a break and taste cured meat from lambs who graze in the valley. The ticket includes admission to the exhibition at Breheimsenteret, which is the visitor centre for the Jostedalsbreen and Breheimen National Parks.


NOK 350 for adults and NOK 250 for children (up to 16 years). The price includes admission to the exhibition, a boat ticket, and food samples.


Approx. 2.5 hours.

Meeting point: 

By the parking at Nigardsbreen glacier lake at 12:30.
