Fjord Norway Vestland LUSTER

Kayaking & Glacier Walking, Luster

Overview

Discover the glacier Austdalsbreen of Styggevatnet by kayaking and walking - with its 30m-high front that calves towers of ice into the lake.

Once the lake has defrosted, we begin the kayaking tours. It is about one to one and a half hours paddling over to Austdalsbreen (glacier) with its 30m-high front that calves towers of ice into the lake. On the way, we look for icebergs that have calved off the glacier in the days before. We stop for some lunch once we get to the glacier, enjoying the view across the front of the calving glacier.

We start the glacier hike on the blue ice at the glacier front, walking around huge crevasses toward the centre of the glacier for a commanding view over the lake and the National Park. We spend about one and a half to two hours on the glacier, exploring and explaining various features of this natural marvel. After the glacier tour, we walk back to the kayaks for our return to civilisation…All good things must come to an end.

For young families, we would recommend our purpose-designed Motorboat & Glacier Tour, where you go to the same places as the kayak and glacier tour, but use a motorboat instead, meaning a shorter, easier trip that is more in line with children. If you are worried about your child on the glacier, you shouldn't be, it's usually the parents we are waiting for!
