Most of the year the blue ice at Folgefonna is covered by snow; a great experience when there is no blue ice availble is to explore Folgefonna glacier or the surrounding nature by snowshoes. Snowshoing is available all year, but it can have some restrictions regarding weather. From 1.5-1.6 this is a daily arranged tour (minimum payment for 4 persons).
Hike starts at Fonna Glacier Ski Resort 11:00 AM. The exact route for the hike is depending on snow and weather conditions. If the car road up to the glacier is not open (due to snow) the start point will be our office Juklafjord in the small village Jondal. After a introduction we drive as far as possible against the glacier, park the cars/bus and the hike starts there. The absolute highlight is to explore the Folgefonna Glacier, and have an magicifcant view to the Hardangerfjord below us.
