On this tour you meet your guide at Stryn Summerski Resort where you will get a short briefing and get ready for the trip. You trip starts by taking the chairlift up the mountain. The lift carries you up through dramatic scenery, and for each minute the view gets increasingly breathtaking.

In every direction there is something spectacular to see, such as the Mt. Lodalskaapa (2083 m), Oppstrynsvatnet Lake in the Strynedalen Valley and the plateau of the great Jostedal Glacier – the largest glacier on mainland Europe.

After leaving the chairlift, the walk towards the glacier front, or start of the glacier, takes us about 45 minutes. We might be walking on glacier ice, or winter snow, the nature is in charge on this, not us. The walk includes about 250 altitude meters on a slightly challenging path, so you should be used to walking to join this trip.

As we reach the glacier we gear up with crampons/snowshoes, harness, ice axe/hiking poles and ropes. The glacier walk lasts about 2-3 hours and you and your guide will be exploring the ice in a safe manner. The condition on the ice may be blue ice, or ice with snow on the surface (this depends on the amount of snow we get in the winter). The guide will share his local knowledge with you, as well as basic geology/ glaciology.

One of the highlight of the trip is the lunch break, which you will have ON the glacier. Few people can say that they’ve had lunch on a glacier, surrounded by such breathtaking views! 

The walk back down to the chair lift takes about 45 minutes and the chairlift transports you back to your starting point at the bottom. 

Welcome to a stress free day, where you can truly enjoy the magnificent Norwegian scenery!
