Full description
Enjoy a private tour that takes you from Bergen to Hardanger and Folgefonna Glacier. Start the tour in Bergen in the morning, with an 8 AM hotel pickup. Then, take the 1.5-hour drive in a private vehicle to Tørvikbygd and cross the Hardangerfjord by ferry to Jondal. From Jondal, drive up to the glacier which is 1200 meters above sea level. Meet your private guide from Folgefonni Breførerlag who will explain everything you need to know about the tour and how to put on the necessary gear. Begin your hike on the Folgefonna Glacier across the huge flat areas of ice. Also, go into crevasse areas and do some climbing if you like. The hike will be adjusted to the wishes of the participants. For some, it will be climbing and adrenalin, for some it will be a quiet walk into a different world. During the day, learn about the cultural and natural history of the glacier. The hike lasts between 3 and 4 hours. After the tour, get dropped-off back at your hotel in Bergen where your experience concludes.
