The Øksfjordjøkul glacier is the only glacier on mainland Europe that calves down into the sea. It is located just between the counties of Troms and Finnmark, and is surrounded of beautiful and wild fjords and high Mountains. Here the snow is on the mountain peaks almost all year round. This is truly a great place for those who want to connect to nature. We leave Alta and head out of the Altafjord where we pass several historic landmarks on the route. Our local guide tells you about the history of Alta from the earliest settlements, Altas favorable position under the Northern Lights belt and the local history up until today.
When we arrive our destination in Jøkelfjord we will have a boat trip out to the glacier to have great picture close by the majestic icefall who reaches 800 meters above sea-level. The glacier is very active and can calve, meaning that ice breaks off the front and falls on the uper ice before it falls in the fjord, leaving the sound of thunder behind.
After we have been on the boat trip we will go back to the harbor where we will have a lunch and warme drinks. When we have enjoyed the great arctic nature and scenery we will head back home to Alta.
