Short Blue Ice Hike
With help of professional glacier guides, the right equipment and expert guidance, it is no witchcraft to explore the NIGARDSBREEN Glacier. You will be roped up and walk leisurely with crampons and ice axe along deep blue crevasses and high ice towers. Sometimes you can even crawl through some ice tunnels. Some part of the route climbs quite steep up and down, which is made easier by steps in the ice. The participants should be reasonably sure-footed.

Duration: 3.5 – 4 hours (1.5 hours on the ice)
Includes: Guide, Boat Transport, Glacier Equipment, Exhibition at Breheimsenteret
