Bondhusdalen valley

Those who have been here, consider Bondhusdalen to be the most beautiful of the many valleys below the Folgefonna glacier. The highlight is the stunning icefall at the head of the valley, reflected in the lake of glacial meltwater.

Buardalen – a hike to the edge of the glacier

From the town of Odda, getting to the glacier is easy. An 8-kilometre drive takes you up to Buer (250 m), and you can already see the glacier from the parking lot. A marked trail leads right up to Buarbreen, a majestic glacier arm of Folgefonna.
