This challenging 11 km (6,8 miles) hike involves steep sections and gets you the closest to the Franz Josef glacier.

After hiking on uneven surfaces mostly in the woods and passing many suspension bridges, you will be awarded with an amazing view of the Glacier and surrounding mountains.


  • You don’t need to start this hike early as there were not that many people on the track and the trees will give you a good shadow and protect you from the sun.
  • Take enough water and snacks with you
  • Duration: 4-6 hours
