Holmaskjer - challenge from fjord to glacier

Starting point
Picnic area near Egne Hjem at Tokheim, 2 km north of Odda along route 550.

About the trail 
Historic tourist route that was established in the late 19th century. At that time, the tourists were taken on horseback from Sundal on the other side up to the glacier, on sledge across the glacier, and on horseback down to Odda. Today, in July and August, it is still possible to do the same tour (without horses) with professional guides from Folgefonni Breførarlag (Folgefonni Glacier Team) when crossing the glacier. The trail is quite steep. It is important to have good footwear, warm and windproof clothing, maps and a compass. The weather changes rapidly on the glacier, and it is often foggy. On the glacier you can stay overnight at the summit cabin at Holmaskjer.
