Description

Folgefonna lengthwise is a demanding, but spectacular spring skiing trip. Here, you’ll experience the contrasts between spring and winter, steep hills, the flat glacier plateau and excellent downhill skiing. This is a 2-day trip. We enjoy a good meal and spend the night at Holmaskjer or Fonnabu. As we make our way down the green hills towards Rosendal, the smell of spring will greet us. Safely down, you can visit the Rosendal Barony.
