The Jostedalsbreen Glacier in Sogn og Fjordane is the largest ice-cap in Northern Europe. It is one of the greatest playgrounds in Norway among skiers and ice-climbers. In April and May, it is popular to ski on the snow covered Jostedalsbreen ice-cap. Folgefonna and Hardangerjøkelen are two other popular glaciers. During the summer, the crampons are used for walking and climbing on the glacier-arms. There are easy access to the glaciers from many of the surrounding valleys. Several companies are guiding on the glaciers in western Norway. Click on the links to the left for more detailed information from the destinations.
Walking on the Austerdalsbreen Glacier We met at Veitastrond in Sogn, and were given crampons and rope before hiking up the Austerdal Valley. The rain poured down, but this didn't seem to affect the moral of the group, as everbody was enjoying the nice walk.
