Paddling in the glacial lake at Briksdalsbreen
Start out from the Briksdal mountain lodge, and head up towards the glacier. The walk should take us around 45 minutes, and takes us through dramatic scenery. We pass roaring rivers, rumbling waterfalls, and steep mountains on our way.
As we reach the mighty glacier, we prepare the equipment. Accompanied by a guide, paddlers navigate a rubber dinghy towards the glacier. To experience the glacier from the lake, gives you a mighty impression of the forces in play, while the guide will show you clear signs of the glaciers movements in the recent years. You will hardly be able to believe the massive retreat the Briksdal glacier has been doing for the last years.
