Must see · Scenic Walking Area · Landmark
Nestled between thunderous waterfalls and high cliffs alongside a small glacial lake, Briksdal Glacier (Briksdalbreen) represents an easily reached arm of continental Europe's largest pancake glacier. Explore the lush valley by foot, taking the paths that lead from the local mountain lodge and follow streams of melting ice cascading down to the sea. Go for a "troll buggy" trip up to the glacier if the ice conditions and the weather allow. Otherwise, opt for a guided glacier safari in a rafting boat on the lake. Tourist-friendly facilities include a restaurant and the area's largest souvenir shop. Be on the lookout for roadblocks--movement of the glacier and the threat of avalanches can make roads dangerous.
