Day 5 – I’m feeling glacial, we should be glacial.

Day five see us in the carpark of the guest house at 7am making sandwiches for our lunchtime trek up the glacier. A two hour drive from Laerdal and a short ferry trip saw us at the Ice Trolls meeting point.

We get a short briefing on how to use the canoes and the next thing I know I’m paddling towards a glacier. This is a wonderful way to approach. Your slow enough moving that you can enjoy the scene but so full of adrenaline that you can’t get bored.

A twenty minute walk over rivers, rocks and boulders and we are at the starting point for our climb. We get crampons an axe and thered together for the stroll on the ice.

My words and pictures canning do this experience justice so I’d suggest that is you ever get a chance to do something like this grab in with both hands…
