      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.

    • Taxi between Stryn & Briksdalen

      I will be traveling to Norway early June and would like to have glacier walk in Briksdalen.

      However, I find that I can't depart from Stryn, have glacier walk and then back to Stryn in the same day by public bus. So I would like to know the price of taking a taxi from Stryn to Briksdalen in the morning (around 9:00) and then back to Stryn in the afternoon (around 18:00) in the same day.

      Thanks in advance
