It is 1 km from the dock up to Brestua, which is situated atop a moraine just near the lake into which Svartisen’s glacial melt flows. From here, visitors enjoy a magnificent view toward Svartisen.
Engenbreen Shuttle Service provides scheduled transport across Holand Fjord from the end of May until the beginning of September. The boat ride across Holand Fjord only takes 10 minutes, and the boat departs from Holandsvika – just near the main highway, about 1000 metres south of the tourist information office.
Svartisen is Norway’s second largest glacier and covers fully 370 square kilometres. Svartisen is easily accessed from Kystriksveien – rv17 – and can be experienced by taking the shuttle boat across Holand Fjord from a point just near the Meløy Tourist Information office in Holand. Here are 3 excellent options – depending on how much time you have to spend here.
Stay the night just near Svartisen Glacier and enjoy the view and tranquillity after the last boat has departed, and you have the area to yourself. The rental cabins are high standard and well-equipped.
