Go hiking on Folgefonna Glacier - the southernmost glacier in Norway. A glacial adventure awaits with deep crevasses, beautiful blue ice and stunning views of the North Sea and the Rosendal Alpes.

Safety is key when hiking on ice. You and your fellow hikers will be roped together with an experienced guide on the 5-6 hour-long hike to explore the Juklavass Glacier, a branch of the imposing Folgefonna Glacier. 

The first leg of the hike takes you from Fonna Ski Resort to a vantage point next to the glacier arm. From here, you can reach the front where the glacier calves - or the summit with stunning views and areas with blue ice crevasses. 

The route will be adapted to the participants wishes and conditions.

Along the way the guides will share information about the nature and history of the area.
