The wonderful scenery of Briksdal is so overwhelming that we would like to share it with you, and it is the glacier itself that gives you the most breath-taking impression. But you will definitely also appreciate the fertile valley next to the ice with the mighty mountains that surround it.
Enjoy the raging glacier rivers
creating a wild dance on its way to the fjord and the ocean, it seems like the water is in a hurry after thousands of years as ice in the valley.
JOSTEDALSBREEN NATIONAL PARK
Briksdal Glacier is a part of the main ice massif, Jostedal Glacier, which is the largest glacier on the European mainland. It is a protected area as a national park, and now covers 486 km2. At its thickest point it is now 400 m. and its tallest peak stretches 1950 m above sea level.
ON FOOT OR BY TROLL CAR
Only 346 m above sea level, the Briksdal Glacier has created a small lake. From the Briksdal Mountain Lodge you can easily get there on foot by walking the 2.5 km long road/path or let us drive you there in one of the Troll Cars.
