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.
Fixed opening hours during the summer season
From 22.May until the end of September, Brestua has fixed opening hours and dining options include snacks, lunch and dinner.
Brestua has seating for 100 guests and a large terrace facing the glacier. The premises are well suited for social gatherings and is a popular spot for anyone seeking a unique setting for their event.
In Brestua, we have prepared a collection showing the history of Svartisen. A number of famous persons have visited Svartisen over the years. Fridtjof Nansen, Keiser Wilhelm, to name a few. Two of the salons are named after these two men and visitors can also view photos and read stories about their visits here.
