      Day Trip to Jostedalsbreen Glacier

      Sogn og Fjordane Dec 2, 2016 at 12:17 PM

      I am keen to go to Jostedalsbreen Glacier, or another glacier if there is a better option in the same region of Norway.

      On Jostedalsbreen Glacier it seems there are a few choices of places to go to, such as Briksdalsbreen and Nigardsbreen, and there are also different options such as just look or do a guided walk.

      I found a bus which goes from Stryn, Loen and Olden to the Briksdalsbreen Glacier, so I can do a day trip this way.

      visitnorway.com/listings/gla...

      This means I can get to the bottom of a glacier, and I have 2 1/2 hours to walk around, and it is a very reasonable price.

      But what are my other options?

      Are there any other accessible glaciers in the region which I should consider?
      How much would a guided walk cost, where would I have to go to do the walk, and who offers these walks?

      I won't have a car, so I am limited by where buses or tours go to.

      Any guidance on this would be very much appreciated.

      Vicking Village

      by manuna Online Now Jul 12, 2010 at 1:04 AM

      I'm a little bit confused. I was planning to visit a vicking village in Gudvangen. I remember that I saw a note that it is open until August 15th.
      fjordnorway.com/en/ATTRACTIO...
      But today when I decided to look for details I found this information, that it is not constructed yet. http://www.myspace.com/vikingvillage
      Or are these different places ? Or someone is wrong?
