FONNA is a summer ski centre on the glacier Folgefonna in Jondal. Alpine skiing, freestyle skiing and snowboarding park, cross-country trails and guided snowshoe hikes. From the top of the ski lift there is an amazing view of the glacier, the Hardangerfjord and the North Sea.
An important gateway to Folgefonna is Jondal, the charming national park village. Jondal, situated right on the Hardangerfjord to west of the national park, is known for its beautifully preserved old wooden houses and its venerable boatbuilding traditions. And this is where you find Juklafjord.
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.
NB! in 2016 the centre is closed due to the construction of the new Folgefonn centre, opening in 2017.
The town of Odda is situated at the head of the Sørfjord, a fjord arm of the famous Hardangerfjord. At Odda tourist information, you can obtain excellent information about Folgefonna National Park and many other attractions in the region.
