Haugabreen glacier walks

A family friendly adventure on the ice!

Family friendly glacier trekking

Hagabreen Glacier is one of the most accessible glaciers in Southern Norway and can be enjoyed by both the younger and older family members. It lays in the western part of the Jostedal Glacier Nationalpark not far from the E39 (the Western Norway Highway). On the way to the glacier your guide will tell you about the role the glacier has played in forming the landscape and the traditional uses of the glacier. We adapt each encounter with the glistening blue ice crystals according to the group’s requests and weather conditions so that everyone in the team is given a unforgettable trip.
