Visited here on a cruise with family. Took bus trip which also included boat trip along lake. Plenty of stops by bus with photo opps including a short 10 min walk to glacier. Not the biggest glacier in the world but trip very worthwhile.

You only the the glacier from a very far distance across the last lake in the Fjord. The red bus was rattling a lot, but English commentary (which we we lucky to hear) was interesting. The trip itself though is great. Beautiful views. Try and...More

The bus is situated by the port, clean and well organised. No need for headphones as audio information is given. We didn’t go to the glacier but stopped by a pretty lake. This trip was very pleasant.

No the open top bus we got doesn't go to the Briksdal glacier. The open top bus is not affiliated to the cruise company we went with either (P&O). We just got on it and paid the bus driver. They draw up right alongside where... More
