Svartisen – Enga glacier

Svartisen is Norways second to highest glacier and has an area of 370 squarekilometers. From the coastal road Kystriksveien (rv17) you may visit Svartisen by taking the boat from Holand across the HolandFjord (Just by the tourist office in Meløy).

The boat to Svartisen glacier

The boat operates frequently during season (end may to beginning of September), and the passing takes about 15 minutes. The glacierarm ‘Engenbreen’ curves toward the Hordlandsfjord which has throughout the years been a natural tourist attraction for norwegian tourists – as goes for the tourists coming from other countries, due to the easy accessibility.
