The glacier is truly amazing nature at its best. The surroundings are beautiful as well, thick forests cliffs and lakes. We went with an organised trip by bus and there was a 10 min walk from the car but very good paths and lovely scenery on the way there It was very windy and at times wet when we were there but still an amazing sight to see the colours don't forget your camera

This trip is an absolute must for anyone in Olden. The views on the way to the glacier are mesmerising. We paid for a bus trip to the Glacier which took about 40 minutes from the centre of Olden and had a couple of hours to make the walk. The views are so beautiful from start to finish. The walk is easy accept for one section with steps but for those unable to walk there are cars which take you to the glacier at an extra cost. It took us a while to walk to the end as we stopped continuously trying desperately to capture the magnificent views on our ineffective smart phones. The glacier itself is truly amazing and definitively worth the walk. This was a day to remember and a absolute must for anyone travelling to Olden.

Beautiful even though it was a very wet day. Did the climb to the glacier, got soaked to the skin but it was well worth. A totally amazing sight. The troll car would definitely be the easy way up but I would say take your time and do the walk - it can be steep but worth the effort.

A stunning piece of nature surrounded by amazing scenery. The glacier is reducing in size but still awesome to see. Take a troll car up as quite a steep walk, no good if you have mobility issues. Only negative feedback is that the whole place by 1pm was swarming with cruise ship passengers which was a shame, the Fiords are sadly being taken over by these huge monstrosities, should be banned over a certain size.

My wife and I visited the Briksdal Glacier in July. It's out in the middle of nowhere. Parking is available but is not free. Followed by a short, steep walk up to the gift shop, dining area and the path to the glacier viewing. Troll cars (UTVs) were expensive but in my opinion well worth the money. Instead of hiking up to the glacier you take a 10 minute ride in a UTV that saves a ton of time and energy. You also get the ride back down! The whole thing took an hour or two. Nice day trip if you are in the area.
