Wonderful experience with fantastic scenery, turquoise lakes and thundering waterfalls. Exhilarating walk to glacier from Briksdal Inn, just don’t forget your wet weather clothing even when the sun is shining! Awesome.

Recommend the walk not the Troll bus Allow couple of hours for return trip from base and more if you want to linger at the Glacier You Get very wet next to a waterfall en route but great fun Nice cafe and souvenir shop

Enjoyed scenic bus ride with stops to/from the glacier. Nice hike to the glacier itself. Be aware you’ll get wet going by waterfall during the hike. Bring water and a snack for the walk. Ida, our tour guide, was funny and knowledgeable.
