From Bergen: Hardangerfjord & Folgefonna Glacier Hike

1. From Bergen: Hardangerfjord & Folgefonna Glacier Hike

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.

From Bergen: Hardangerfjord & Vøringsfossen Private Tour

2. From Bergen: Hardangerfjord & Vøringsfossen Private Tour

This private guided round trip starts by car in Bergen at 7 AM, lasts for about 10 hours, and will take you through beautiful scenery with views of majestic mountains, roaring waterfalls, and idyllic orchards. During the tour, delight in an express cruise through the spectacular Hardangerfjord, and marvel at the breathtaking Vøringsfossen waterfall. If Sognefjord is the king of the fjords, then Hardangerfjord is the queen. Stretching for 179 kilometers (111 miles), it is the second-largest fjord in Norway and the fourth-largest in the world. Surrounded by towering cliffs, snow-capped mountains, and blossoming fruit trees, this part of Norway is a masterpiece of spellbinding nature, even for the most seasoned traveler. From an open-deck catamaran, admire the natural beauty and breathtaking scenery this area offers. Depart from the charming village of Norheimsund and journey to Eidfljord through a landscape full of historic villages, waterfalls, and orchards. Make sure to have your camera ready! In the distance, see Folgefonna glacier and national park, the third largest glacier in Norway. On the way, the boat stops in Herand, Utne, Lofthus, Kinsarvik, and Ulvik. Upon arrival in Eidfjord, continue by car up 700 meters (almost 2,300 feet) to Vøringsfossen waterfall. See the landscape open up before you as you make your way up, and take a minute to really appreciate the view once you reach the top. Step forward, if you dare, and watch the raging water hit the valley 182 meters (597 feet) below. From Vøringsfossen, take a scenic drive back toward Bergen, passing Hardangerfjord Bridge and Voss town on the way.

What people are saying about Hardangerfjord

Excellent trip! Picked up from our hotel in a Porsche and water provided. Stop at a lovely waterfall on the way and the tour guide at Folgefonna was excellent. Knowledgeable, and plenty of breaks. Make sure to take some sandwiches with you as there's a sit down just under half way for a snack. Journey back was just as good and the taxi driver was lovely. He joined us for the hike also. Couldn't fault the trip or the team at Folgefonna. Only negative is it says equipment included - we lost our luggage and contacted the provider who said everything was included and we wouldn't need to buy anything. They provided waterproofs, gloves and snow boots with crampons but nothing for warmth so glad I'd already bought a hoodie. Would recommend, highly enjoyed!
