Glacier walk on the Tystigbreen Glacier at Strynefjellet, near Stryn Summerski.
You will be surrounded by breathtaking views. In every direction there is something spectacular to see, such as the Mt. Lodalskaapa (2083 m), Oppstrynsvatnet Lake in the Strynedalen Valley and the plateau of the great Jostedalsbreen Glacier - the largest glacier on mainland Europe.
Meeting point by the parking place of the Stryn Summerski resort at 9:30 am. Be there at least 15 minutes early. Chair lift to 1300 m.a.s.l..
The walk up to the glacier front takes us about 45 miutes in average from the end of the chair lift, and it includes about 250 altitude meters on a slightly challenging path, so you should be used to walking to join this trip. As we reach the glacier we gear up, using our helmets, crampons, harness, ice axe and ropes.
The walking on the glacier is about 2-3 hours. We'll be exploring the ice in a safe way. The conditions on the ice may be blue ice, or ice with snow on the surface, this depends on the amount of snow we get in the winter.
The guide shares his local knowledge with you, as well as basic geology/ glaciology. The peak of the trip is the lunchtime, that we have ON the glacier.
The walk back down towards the chair lift should take us about 45 minutes, and we should return to the parking place around 16:00.
