This has to be one of the best hikes I have done. Loved every minute of this climb. Directions to here are good and although the parking was 150NOK, I thought it was well worth it. The trail is well marked out and at no...More

The Buerbreen glacier hike is a bit demanding but okay to do with kids. The path is full of small rocks and at some points a bit demanding but ropes and climbing, but the view of the glacier is outstanding.
