Experience the blue ice of the Nigardsbreen in a small group of max. 6 pers. before all the other tourists visit the glacier. We take the first boat across the Nigardsbreen Lake and experience a unique and quiet nature. As you know, early birds peck first...
In such a small group, you get in good contact with the tour guide. He gladly answers questions about the glacier or the local history about Jostedalen and the Jostedalsbreen glacier. Before the tour begins, you will be instructed thoroughly by the leader about the use of crampons, rope, ice axe etc.
Included in the hike is a lunch package (please inform us if you are a vegetarian) and the exhibition at the Breheimsenteret, the Glacier Visitor Centre.
