Briksdal Glacier (Briksdalsbreen), Norway, revisited 2017

In the middle of September this year, we revisited the Briksdal Glacier. Even we knew it has withdrawn considerably since last time, it was still a bit disappointing to see it was hardly hanging over the edge of the mountain. Anyhow, the drive up the valley was spectacular as always, even more so this time with the dramatic clouds covering the mountain sides.

As carefully suggested in the previous post about the Briksdal Galcier we strongly urges everybody to walk the 2.5 km from the parking, although they offer transport most of the way, its an easy walk.

OBS, the photo above was taken in 2006, and is only added for comparison to where the glacier where then.

As a bonus, following are some photos taken along the valley while driving up to the glacier.
