Travel by coach through the beautiful Olden Valley with its majestic mountains, glacier tongues, waterfalls and the green Olden Lake. During the drive your guide will provide you with interesting information on the area. On arrival at the Briksdal Inn, you’ll begin your walk up to the Briksdal Glacier. Briksdal Glacier, located in Jostedalsbreen National Park, is part of the Jostedal Glacier Icefield, which is the largest glacier on the European mainland. This massive Glacier flows 4,000 feet down the mountainside into the Briksdal Valley. A 45 minute walk will take you across the river and through pristine scenery until you come face to face with one of Europe’s most spectacular examples of an ancient Glacier. There will be time to photograph the Glacier’s many shades of blue and turquoise before walking back to the Briksdal Inn where refreshments of coffee, tea and cakes will be served. There will be time to browse the souvenir shop before boarding the coach back to Olden.
