Jostedalsbreen Glacier 

In the mountains of Norway there are 20 glaciers in total, and Jostedalsbreen alone is 487 square kilometers. 11 of the 20 glaciers are in Fjord Norway. So that less experienced hikers can experience the wild ice and snow landscape without exposing themselves to danger, guided tours are available in most of the glacier areas. For safety reasons, participants on these tours walk on a rope and equipment such as ropes, ice picks and crampons can be hired from the tour organiser.

 

Do not cross the barriers in front of the glacier without a guide! Standing too close to the glacier can be dangerous, as blocks of ice can suddenly break loose from the glacier.
