Description

Norway’s third biggest glacier covers a total area of 214 km2. The summit of Folgefonna is 1,662 metres above sea level. There are paths up from Sundal and Odda. The trip up takes 4-6 hours.

During the summer season, there are daily guided tours across the glacier between the Norwegian Mountain Hiking Association cabins of Fonnabu and Holmaskjær. It is also possible to take blue ice tours on some of the offshoots of the glacier.
