Details

Be prepared for some serious exercise on this highly active excursion, during which you’ll hike up to two of Norway's most stunning glaciers. You’ll board your motor coach at Olden Harbor and enjoy a narrated tour as you make your way through Olden. Your guide will point out landmarks such as the delightful 18th century village church, and also the William H. Singer home and gallery. Continuing on to the Brenndals Valley, you’ll pass both Lovatnet and Oldevatnet lakes, whose waters are colored by clay and glacial silt. You will not be walking directly on any glaciers during this hike; instead your guide will lead this hike that ascends the Brenndalsbreen Glacier. Here, you will enjoy the scenic views of the Brenndalsbreen Glacier, the surrounding peaks and the magnificent Melkevoll Glacier. The stunning gray-and-white Brenndalsbreen Glacier makes up one of the three arms of the Jostedalsbreen Glacier, the largest ice sheet in Continental Europe. Head back down and take a break to enjoy a delicious two-course lunch at the charming Briksdal Inn. You’ll then head back into the gorgeous valley for your second hike, where you will embark to the Briksdal Glacier. Like Brenndalsbreen Glacier, this glacier also makes up one of the three arms of the Jostedalbreen ice sheet. Its face is colored with dramatic shades of blue and turquoise. After witnessing this amazing glacier up-close, you will traverse back down to the motor coach and drive back to the ship.
