Meeting Facilities

Austdalsbreen (61°45'N, 7°20'E) (11.8 km2) is a north-eastern outlet from Jostedalsbreen. The glacier is east facing and ranges in height from 1200 to 1760 m a.s.l. Austdalsbreen calves into the lake Austdalsvatnet which is regulated between 1150 and 1200 m a.s.l. for hydro-power production purposes. Glaciological work started at Austdalsbreen in 1986 in connection with the construction of the hydro-electric power plant.

STYGGEVATNET (1200m ASL) is covered by snow until early July (usually).


Styggevatnet is up amongst the barren plateau mountains of the Jostedalsbreen icecap and, unlike Tunsbergdalsvatnet, we are kayaking close to the tops of the surrounding mountains.


The glacier we kayak to here, Austdalsbreen, is actually in the lake and calves towers of ice into the water, providing us with icebergs
