You can hear the trickle of countless rivulets and little streams, smell the cold, and see the ice-crystals gleaming blue and green, turquoise and white. Ringed around the glacier, the forest is iridescent summer green. As you stand on the Svartisen glacier, you feel a shiver down your back – not from the cold but from the overwhelming beauty of the scenery.

Join us on an unforgettable day excursion to Svartisen glacier! From Støtt Brygge, our RIB boats speed towards the mainland. When we arrive at the harbour, our rented bikes are waiting; on two wheels we’ll ride as far as we can, before hiking the last stretch up to the glacier’s edge. With crampons on our boots and with ice-axe in hand, we’ll explore crevasses and amazing ice formations, and the glacial plateau itself.

On our return, we visit Brestua lodge for refreshments, before heading back to Støtt. (Open from 1. june up august)

We have all the equipment you will need on the glacier, but you should also bring a backpack, warm clothes, sunglasses and gloves. Upon departing from Støtt Brygge, you get a lunch pack which is included in the price.
