The well made path goes through lush forest, over glacial meltwater streams and towards the southernmost outlet glacier from Jostedalsbreen; Supphellebreen Glacier, about1000 metres above sea level. Here we can walk different paths leading closer to the glacier, before we head towards the Flatbrehytta Cabin and the walk back to the valley.
