Overview

Facts
This is not a daily trip but arranged if we have 2 or more participants (or pay for 2 pax). Maximum capacity is 8 pax, so this is our most exclusive trip.  In booking process, it must be agreed where to meet and if you want to bring your own lunch or not. After safety introduction and adjustment of equipment, we are ready to start the paddle. The kayak trip is about 3 km in distance, we paddle along shore on our way to the glacier. At a beach nearby the glacier we park the kayaks and eat lunch while we take a close look on the glacier. This is a “young” glacier arm of Folgefonna; the glacier is about 5000 years old, but 1500 years ago, the ice was not present in this valley, guide will tell you more. After lunch we go back to the kayak and paddle back to start point. Normal duration for this trip is 6 hour (start and stop in Rosendal)
