Walking on Svartisen Glacier

Walking on Svartisen glacier
Visit Svartisen glacier from Holandsfjord to an arm called Engabreen, which appears to reach down and tickle the fjord with its icy fingers. The magical blue ice draws you nearer but the screeching and groaning remind you of the hidden dangers. Ice caves and deep fissures abound, so book a guide if you wish to explore. They’ll equip you with rope, ice picks and crampons for your unforgettable hike. The walk lasts about five hours and should be booked in advance.
