How to See the Jostedal Glacier - Even If You Are Not a Hiker!

Jostedalsbreen Glacier is the biggest glacier in continental Europe. It might seem that the only way to see it must be some strenuous and technical trek. The good news is, you can see some of it even if you are not a hiker. You can drive to parking near one of its arms and either walk a pretty wide path or if that's too much - get a ride with an electric car.

Last summer I spent in Norway. Most of it I hiked, and wild camped solo and had the time of my life. But I am not a hiker ready to cross a glacier. You need appropriate gear, skills, and experience to move anywhere close to such area.

Hiking & Camping Solo in Norway: Solrenningen - Ortnevik by Sognefjorden

Ahead of me was the last leg of this year’s Norwegian adventure. After a couple days of hiking on lower altitudes, through bushes, trees and general greenery, I was again to reach higher peaks and be surrounded by awe-inspiring grey views.

After a longer break at the Solrenningen mountain shelter, I finally got myself going. I had quite the height to cover and there was no sense to stay down any longer.

The path was mostly fine – very steep at some points but generally providing nice climbing experience. Very soon I had views to admire and could see the shelter getting smaller and smaller. The trail marking was fine in the beginning but then I got confused at one moment. There was a river with beautiful waterfall and a kind of flat area with multiple possible paths.

Hiking & Camping Solo in Norway: Dale to Høgabu Near Bergen

This past July my dream came true: I went back to Norway and spent a couple of weeks hiking and camping solo. I think Norway is just the perfect destination for all who love big views, adventure, and beauty. I am a loner who hikes solo and I can highly recommend Norway for all fellow solo hikers and campers!

Norway is huge and there is no region which lacks in beauty. I would have a really hard time choosing trails if it weren’t for the fact that I have a friend living there. She lives a few hundred kilometers north of Bergen, so it made a perfect sense to make Bergen my starting point.
