Glacier Hiking / Caving in Northern Norway

Glittering glaciers between majestic mountains, ice caves and deep mountain caverns where time stands still. There is more to the mountains of Northern Norway and Svalbard than meets the eye.

In a number of different places there are glaciers of varying sizes offering a wealth of unique adventures. However, this is not something you should attempt without having prior experience. The tourist information centre will introduce you to local glacier guides who can take you through the area. At the Svartisen Glacier, in the Svartisen-Saltfjellet National Park, an incredible 15 metres of snow a year falls on the glacial plateau. This is snow which is transformed into blue ice, which in turn spends several years on its journey down to the fjord. Caving is another extraordinary adventure. In Nordland you will find some of the biggest and longest caves in Norway. During the winter in Svalbard you can enter vast ice caves beneath the glacier. You are required to have the company of a guide on such trips.

Put on your headlamp and explore the geological and artistic ice and dripstone formations.
