Northern Norway Nordland MELØY

A glacier trek on Svartisen

  • Glomveien 62, Glomfjord
  • +47 91540866
  •  /  km From You

Join us for an exotic adventure: a guided glacier trek on Engabreen. The experienced guides from Meløy Adventure will ensure that this is a safe and unforgettable adventure.

Svartisen is the second largest glacier on the Norwegian mainland, and Engabreen is an impressive glacier arm that reaches almost all the way down to the fjord. Before setting out on this glacier trek, your experienced guides will equip you with crampons, ice axes and safety harnesses. To keep everyone safe, we will be linked together by rope.

This glacier trek is a unique opportunity to experience up close the dense glacial ice, the amazing ice formations that sometimes look like sculptures, and the deep crevasses in the glacier.

During the summer, daily excursions start every morning. In June and July, you can also join a glacier trek under the midnight sun! This makes your glacier adventure even more amazing.

The guided glacier treks are suitable for everyone over the age of 12 who is in reasonably good shape. Please note that you do not need any prior experience. Your expert guides will provide you with all the equipment you need and lead you safely across the glacier. All you need is good footwear, warm clothing, and a small backpack with a packed lunch and plenty of water.

Engabreen is situated Meløy municipality and is easily accessible from route Fv17. From Holandsvika the shuttle boat MS “Isprins” regularly crosses the fjord towards Svartisen. From the quay on the other side, we have a 3 km walk along a gravel road up to the glacier.

The total duration for this glacier adventure is 6–7 hours.
