Overview

What would you say if we told you that you could enjoy a bus, boat and ski trip all in one day? And in the height of summer? Well, believe it or not, you can when you book our tour to Folgefonna glacier.

Our tour leaves Bergen by bus and will take you to the first stop, Norheimsund. From here you’ll enjoy a boat cruise on the beautiful Hardangerfjord. Sit back, relax and enjoy the serene fjord in all its glory before departing the boat at Herand. Looming in the distance, you’ll be able to see the Folgefonna glacier and National Park. A bus runs from Herand to Fonna Glacier Ski Resort. It’s here that you can put your ski or snowboarding skills to the test.

1200 metres above sea level, this leading summer ski resort has slopes for every level. The wide alpine ski slopes are perfect for beginners, offering plenty of space to get to grips with the basics. Perhaps you’re a seasoned snowsport enthusiast? In which case you can try out new tricks at the freestyle park. As you’re taking a rest on the ski lift, be sure to admire the astonishing views of Hardangerfjord. On a clear day, you can even see the North Sea!

Here, you can experience authentic Norwegian cultural history with old farmyards, marketplaces, Bronze Age carvings, a boat-building museum and local flavours.

  • Folgefonna Ski Resort

    The glacier is located in the county of Hordaland and is one of the southernmost glaciers in Norway. Summer skiing has been a popular activity here for the past 20 years, and the ski-lift is mounted directly on the glacier. From freestyle skiing, cross-country skiing trails to a snowboarding park and snowshoe hikes, there’s plenty to keep you busy at Folgefonna ski resort. The views from this summer ski resort will leave you speechless!

  • Hardangerfjord

    If Sognefjord is the King of the fjords then Hardangerfjord is the Queen. Stretching for 179 km, it is the second largest fjord in Norway and the fourth largest in the world. Surrounded by towering cliffs, snow-capped mountains and blossoming fruit trees, this part of Norway is a masterpiece of nature.
