Svartisen is Norway’s second largest glacier, and the lowest glacier in mainland Europe. This makes it easy accessible for hikes. In Ørnes, we enter a bus that will take us on a guided tour through beautiful scenery to the small village of Holandsvik. Here, we enter a boat for a 10-minute ride across the fjord.
Upon arrival at Svartisen, you may visit a moose farm and get close to Europe’s largest land living animal. An adult male can grow more than 2 meters tall and weigh between 400-500kg.The guides will take you on a tour where you get a chance to get close and maybe even feed the moose.
At the Svartisen Tourist Center, you can admire the beauty of this enigmatic ice world while enjoying a warm drink and the center’s varied buffet of delicious cakes. Afterwards, you continue your journey along the beautiful coast of Helgeland back to Bodø. On the way, you will pass Saltstraumen, the world’s strongest tidal current.
