Description
Waypoints (0)

This hike leads to one of the most accessible glaciers in Norway. Even at this low altitude of close to 300 metres (1000 feet) above sea level, you get the feeling that you are in an alpine, even polar environment between the lake and the glacier tongue, and further down at the river delta you can observe some of the processes forming the landscape. This hike is kidsfriendly.
