The adventures of Norway’s second- biggest glacier start only 50 metres from the popular coastal route along the Helgeland coast in Northern Norway, where the road gently stops by the Holand fjord. “In our current season, between April and September, you can leave your car and take a ten-minute ferry ride over to the other side of the fjord,” says Rolf Nilsen, manager of Svartisen AS, a company coordinating activities and facilities on and near Svartisen. At the other end of the fjord you have majestic views of the glacier, but what also awaits is some complex decision-making.
