We booked a visit to the glacier, paying the extra to take the Troll Car. The glacier was interesting and having been there in the 1980's you can see the impact of global warming as it has retreated away from the lake. It was a...More

Absolutely beautiful, our favourite place on our cruise to the Fiords. We went on a bus trip because the tours from the ship are quite expensive.

It was a gine, intertaining 3 hours. We went to the glacier with 'trols'. At the end of the road we walked for about 500 m. Glacier is pretty small but the high glacier lake is still worth a visit.
