Photographer's Note

The Nigardsbreen Glacier is one of the most accessible glaciers, where you can peer into the blue ice at very close range.
When you drive up the scenic valley of Jostedalen, you will end up at the Breheimsenteret - the national park centre.

From this centre it is a short drive up to the car park, and from there you can either walk along the lake up to the glacier itself or take the boat across the lake (only in summer).

Even at this low altitude of close to 300 metres above sea level, you get the feeling that you are in an alpine, even polar environment between the lake and the glacier tongue.

While I was taken pictures of the (half frozen) lake where the car park was and where we started the walk to the glacier tongue, my girl friend took pictures of me, standing in front of the huge blue glacier.
