Description

This 4-day Jostedalsbreen glacier ski traverse will take you across the largest glacier in the European mainland!

With a total area of 487 square-kms, Jostedalsbreen is the largest glacier in the continental part of Europe — there are even bigger ones in the Norwegian Svalbard archipelago). Jostedalsbreen is located in Sogn og Fjordane county, in western Norway, and it covers over half of Jostedalsbreen National Park.

This amazing ski touring trip will start with a bus ride to Amot, in the traditional region of Osterdalen, followed by a taxi drive to Sotaseter. From here, we'll set up our gear and start the ski traverse through wild and incredible scenery.

It will be a journey through the seasons. From the summer weather of the lowlands to the raw winter weather in the highest part of the glacier at 1952m. And if weather conditions are good, we'll be able to summit the peaks of Brenibba (2018 m) and Lodalskåpa (2083 m), the highest in the area.

I’ll be happy to guide you on this 4-day Jostedalsbreen glacier ski traverse. So please send me a request and let's embark on this amazing ski touring project together!
