Incredible night on glacier.
Because the weather in Norway now, is similar to summer I was take some free days and small trip to Sognefjord area. Much more from my trip I will present later in the single posts from each places I visited. Today I want to present and describe my experience with another one glacier. After crossing the amazing Sognefjellet road I drove down the road 55 and finally stop in Gaupne. Early evening and nothing special to do, has caused me to look around. So, I found the road sign with direction to the Nigardsbreen glacier. Why not.
I reached it around 8.00 pm. Like you may see it on the picture below it was a sunset time. White rocks around, blue ice on glacier and the sunset. Sounds like a dream, and it was like a dream for me. Because I reached this place at this time, nobody was there. Any tourists and any handling crew. Completely alone I was take a long walk to the glacier and a little on the glacier. I know it is dangerous to be on a melting glacier, but it was a first possibility for me to be so close with millions years old ice. Nice to touch something that old. It was incredible night on glacier.
Like I read later there is few more glaciers around in this valley, and I save this place on my private map for to visit it again.
Morning time was incredible cold and wet. Whole valley was in the shadow and the river Jostedøla (which rolling the ice cold water from the glaciers around) keeps the temperature around 5 degrees. Later when the sun will rise is much better.
