Three powerful facets of the natural world are waiting on this excursion. 

At the top of the mountains there is always snow and big and small glaciers, the largest of which is Svartisen, northern Scandinavia's largest glacier. The Svartisen (Black Ice) Glacier got its name not because it is so black, but because it is so blue! The deep blue colour of the ice contrasts with the fresh white snow drifts, and so the ice appears black. 

With the Glacier stretching towards the water, below we stop at a cafe where you can taste the Norwegian speciality, lefser, while enjoying a wonderful view to the glacial landscape.
