Norway’s second largest glacier, Svartisen, stretches over 370 km2 and has a full 60 glacier arms. One of the most famous glacial arms is Austerdalsisen in Rana Municipality.
To reach the glacier arm, you may take a 20-minute boat trip over Svartisvatnet, followed by a 3 km hike to Austerdalsisen.
You can experience this exciting landscape, which was covered by the glacier just a few decades ago. Austerdalsisen deposits crevassed ice into the water and ice cold glacial rivers. It is a majestic sight.
The boat across Svartisvatnet only operates during the summer season. Please contact Helgeland Reiseliv for boat schedules: Phone + 47 75 01 80 00
