The Most Iconic Norway Glacier

Snow, ice, cold water and thousands of years brought the largest glacier on the European mainland, the Jostedal Glacier, into the world.

People from different countries and cities come to see the most accessible arm of the glacier called the Briksdal Glacier, which is a majestic example of what our nature is capable of creating.

Briksdal is attractively set in between the roaring waterfalls and high peaks in the Jostedalsbreen National Park. The park itself is considered to be one the most frequently visited tourist attractions in Norway, encompassing one of the largest wilderness areas in the southern part of the country.

With numerous trails for hiking, it is now among the most popular fun pursuits in the area. Varying in the level of skill required, there are plenty of hiking possibilities for beginners as well as professionals. What's for the best ways to explore the area, the 3-hour hiking trail, offering picturesque views of not only the Briksdal Glacier but the Melkevoll and Brenndal ones are a great idea.

Gushing streams, rivers and waterfalls cascading down steep mountainsides or deep down in the valleys are the things you don't want to miss out on!
