Supphellebreen glacierThis is the lowest lying glacier in Southern Norway, only 60 m a.s.l. The glacier is kept alive by ice avalanches from Flatbreen, some 800 m higher. Yearly so much ice is coming down to the valley floor that if we put the ice on a football ground it will be a layer of ice 230 m thick.
