  Svartisen Glacier
by novsco61

If you're on the way from Trondheim to Bodo, you have to visit Glacier Svartisen.
30 km on the road, half an hour by boat on the lake Engenbrevatnet and 45 minutes walk to the glacier. The lake is a result of the massive glacier melting that took place in the 1940s.
If you think the glacier seems large from a distance, your perspective will change dramatically when the glacier snout looms above you and the massive cliffs of ice are no longer just exotic pictures on a postcard.
