The road to the glacier is normally open from April to October. The glacier boat operates from late May and continue until October 1.
No reason to hesitate or wonder where to go to find your ultimate nature experience in Norway. Nigardsbreen is the easiest accessible glacier, and this is where you find the best guided glacier hikes.
Other glacier are shrinking and vanishing, Nigardsbreen is still massive and powerful. Both Jostedalen and the Jostedalsbreen Glacier are considered beeing among the highlights to visitors in Norway.
This is where Brevegen AS welcomes you. Between the Breheimsenteret and the Nigardsbreen we are running a toll road, more than 3 km long, and we have two small passenger ferries on the Glacier Lake. See picturemap.
The road goes through a very interesting moraine landscape, where the ice was several hundred meters thick in the 17th and 18th century. All this and more you can learn from the museum in the Breheimsenteret.
The boat MS Jostedalsrypa carries the name of a very famous Jostedalen girl, the Jostedale Ptarmigan. It carries 24 passengers, and the season lasts from late May until October 1. In the peak season we operate two boats.
By driving the road and crossing the lake you reach the impressive front of the Nigardsbreen, where you also can join a guided glacier hike with one of the guides from the Jostedalen Glacier Guides co.
