Long Blue Ice Hike

Experience with our mountain guides the giant blue ice world of the NIGARDSBREEN Glacier on a Glacier hike and learn about the exciting nature of the Jostedalsglacier. The trip is long enough to seek out some of the most impressive areas of the blue ice.

Discover the power of nature and learn how to use crampons and ice axe, visit ice tunnels, impressive ice towers and deep blue crevasses. Learn all about the formative power of a Glacier. An experience you never will forget!

This glacier hike is more demanding than the Short Blue Ice Hike. The route passes through some more challenging and steeper parts of the glacier and as a reward you get a great view.

The entrance to the exhibition at Breheimsenteret is included. (Does not apply to groups).
