Olden Private - The ultimate Briksdal glacier tour - Norway Excursions

Olden Private - The ultimate Briksdal glacier tour

From EUR 1'165

Guided Excursion - Private excursion:

The excursion will depart from the village of Olden. The bus will take you through the valley, passing ‘the little red church’ from the early 1900’s which was a gift from an American collector of Norwegian antiques. Nowadays it is a museum. The tour continues along Lake Olden to Rustøen, all the way at the end of the fjord. Here you will find many colourful farms, as this valley is very fertile, and many waterfalls. From Rustøen we go to Briksdal Inn. This is where the walk to the Briksdal Glacier, an arm of Europe’s largest glacier the Jostedal Glacier, starts.

A beautiful track surrounded by waterfalls and mountains, will lead you to the viewpoint at the glacier lake, from where you will be able to enjoy this amazing natural treasure. The walk to the viewpoint normally takes approximately 45-60 minutes. The first part of the track is considered the most difficult. After that, the surface is relatively even and the hike gets much easier.
