Experience Glacier Hiking Near Bergen, Norway

Glacier hiking can be a smooth walk over a thousand-year-old dessert of ice or a climb over 20-meter high bluffs. The feat is in finding the right route for you.

Those who trek through the glacier fall (Juklavass glacier) experience flat ice that seems calm but it changes quietly underneath or more challenging crevasse areas. Your guide will help select the difficulty level of your hike depending on the members in the group.

The test is in moving together with your party to climb icy slopes giving way to stunning views of the ocean. Every step is an experience leading across Norway’s third largest glacier, Flogefonna.

Each member is bound to the group for safety as you hike past frozen valleys and conical towers in search of the alluring blue ice that leads to the emerald waters of Lake Jukla.

Armed with wind and water-proof clothing, mountain boots, and equipment you walk 5-6 km through breathtaking glaciers. Bring sunglasses, UV protection lotion, food and water for the six-hour trip.

Start the trip at the Bergen bus station. From the bus station you will travel to  Norheimsund, then to Herand by boat. From Herand you will take another bus to Fonna Glacier Ski Resort. Book the tour two days in advance.

The resort schedules two tours a day from June 10th to September 1st each year. During the off season you can choose cross country skiing or snow shoe walking.

When you return to Bergen in the evening retire to your luxury rental apartment to sit back and reflect on your amazing icy adventures.
