Description This excursion provides the extraordinary opportunity to admire the Kjenndalen glacier up close as it is one of the unmissable attractions of Nordfjord with its magnificent enchanting colours. A motor boat trip around Lovatnet lake provides the occasion to admire the marvellous surrounding scenery from a new perspective.

What we will see
  • Nordfjord, the sixth longest fjord in Norway
  • Kjenndalen glacier with its blue and green colour palette
  • Lovatnet lake and its waters coloured by clay


What we will do
  • We set off on this exciting half-day excursion surrounded by the Norwegian countryside as we drive across the Nordfjord, the sixth longest fjord in Norway.
  • We proceed towards Kjenndalen valley towards the starting point of the trail leading to the glacier.
  • Kjenndalen glacier, part of the Jostedalsbreen National Park, is the largest stretch of ice in continental Europe. After a short easy walk, an amazing landscape dominated by deep blue-green hues appears before our eyes.
  • We take advantage of this breathtaking landscape to take some evocative photographs.
  • Trekking makes us peckish, so we enjoy a well-deserved break at the Kjenndalstova mountain refuge with a cup of steaming coffee or tea accompanied by delicious sweets.
  • Our excursion then continues to the much-admired Lovatnet lake where we board a small motor boat. During a wonderful crossing on the turquoise waters, our guide helps us to discover how these unique colours derive from the clay transported by the majestic glacier.
  • We conclude our experience by returning to Nordfjordeid by coach.

What you need to know
