Make your vacation an adventure with a glacier hike on Haugabreen.
Haugabreen is an easy accessible glacier arm in Jostedalsbreen National Park. To get to this glacier you will drive through magnificent fjord landscape to Stardalen Valley in Jølster (about 1 hour from Stryn). At Jølster tourist information office you will meet one of our guides for the trip. On the way to the glacier the guide will tell about the glacier's role in the formation of the landscape, and the local glacial history. When we reach the glacier we put on crampons, grab the ice ax and make a rope team.
The glacier hike will be adapted after the group's wishes.
The glacier hike with Breogfjell on the Haugabreen Glacier requires no prior knowledge. The tour lasts about 6 hours from the parking lot.
