Glacier hiking is a thrilling, challenging, and exciting activity! And for glacier hikes, Hardanger and Folgefonna is the perfect place. Easily accessible from Bergen and kids from 7 years and up can join in!

Folgefonna is Norway's third-largest glacier and covers large parts of Hardanger. The Hardanger area is known for its large selection of activities and experiences, and glacier hiking at Folgefonna is perhaps the most exciting of them all!

Tour description

You start your tour from Bergen by taking a bus to Norheimsund where the fjord express boat will be waiting for you. The boat takes you across the beautiful Hardangerfjord and you disembark at Herand. A bus will be waiting for you to take you safely to the Folgefonna Welcome Centre where an experienced guide will meet you. 

Your guide will give you all the safety instructions and practical information you need before he escorts you on a walk on one of Norway's most amazing glaciers! During the trip, your guide will also provide you with information about the area’s nature, history, and culture, as well as insuring that everybody is safe on the glacier.

This tour can be started in Bergen and you can complete the whole tour in a day. We highly recommend spending a night or two in Norheimsund.
