Motorboat & Glacier Tour
The Motorboat and Glacier Tour is available from early July when we start the tours on Styggevatnet). Before that time, if you are interested in a similar tour we would recommend the NIGARDSBREVATNET TOUR (with a short kayak trip and glacier tour), ideal for families

If you have interest in a privately guided tour, we are open to guided trips outside of the daily times mentioned below.
Shorter trip, ideal for families
We begin the tour with 25 minute motor boat trip to Austdalsbreen (Glacier) driving around ice-bergs and then up to the glacier front, with its 35m high terminal that descends into the lake from the Jostedalsbreen Icecap above. Towers of ice calving into the lake from the glacier front will entertain as we get to this most remote and untouched area.

Once the boat is safely anchored, we walk up to the front of the glacier for a glacier hike (approx 2 hours).

The Austdalsbreen (glacier) is very easy to walk on, but it is what we see while walking on the glacier that is amazing. Walking amongst the myriad of crevasses across the front of the glacier and standing atop this natural wonder will complete the experience

We have designed this tour for folks that are less able and young families. If you are at all interested, please get in touch and we can talk it over :-)

I just wanted to send a quick email to say what a fantastic day we had last Wednesday when we came glacier walking with Ice Troll. The trip was so well organised and the guides Carlos and Sam were excellent and very knowledgable about the glaciers. They made us feel relaxed and welcome and we thoroughly enjoyed spending time with them. The weather was wonderful and the sun shone when we were on the glacier making it a really special experience.
Thank you very much for a great day
We would like to let you know that the tour was really nice today. It was quite the experience in which we have seen the beauty of the glacier. We especially liked that the route did not only follow the widest and easiest parts, but also smaller and narrow passageways between big crevasses. The unique features of the glacier showed perfectly.
Our guide was really nice, Mathias. He told us lot about the glacier, nature and hiking on it. Many thanks to him.
I would definitely recommend the tour to other people and will come back when we are around in Norway again.
