As we continued our journey from Øye to Høyheimsvik, our next destination was the Bøjabreen Glacier near Fjærland. This glacier, known for its steep slopes, stands tall at over 1,700 meters above sea level, while its base touches a low point of around 600 meters. The Bøjabreen Glacier is a highlight of the Jostedalsbreen glacier, the largest glacier in continental Europe, situated in the southwestern part of Norway. Its arms stretch far and wide, each possessing a unique character—Nigardsbreen, Briksdalsbreen, and the very arm that had momentarily captured my attention, Bøyabreen. Bøyabreen is both easily accessible and undeniably magnificent. Upon reaching the glacier after a short and effortless walk, we found tour buses lining the area, and nearby parking spots occupied by camping enthusiasts. I patiently waited for over 30 minutes to capture a moment without any people, aiming to capture the essence of tranquility. In hindsight, a few figures in the frame might have added a touch of perspective to the photograph - Bøjabreen Glacier, Fjærland, Vestland, Norway
