This national park in Norway is one of the top ones in the country. Known as Folgefonna nasjonalpark in the native language, the area spreads to around five municipalities. Opened in 2005 by Queen Sonja herself, this park has since then been a popular weekend getaway for families and youngsters. Including three glaciers, Folgefonna boasts of being the third largest ice cap in the country. While the higher parts of the mountains are void of blooming flora and fauna, the rich valleys are home to a diverse variety of plants and animals. Golden eagles, meadow pipits, red deer, black grouse, capercaillie and white-backed woodpecker are some of the common species found here.

Folgefonna National Park Reviews & Ratings

  • Beautiful Park which has not been overrun by tourists yet. Can be reached from all sides. Lots of beautiful and long hiking trails. The glacier is breathtaking and definitely worth a visit. Make sure to have an offline trail map with you as the internet connection is very poor. Great for wild camping in the summer months. Be prepared for fast weather changes.

  • We loved the hike! It was a great experience. If you follow the signs for Buer going south of of Odda you will come to a parking lot. The hike starts through a farm and up into the woods. Eventually it will start to get a bit more rocky and mountainous. Follow the red Ts along the trail and you'll be fine. There are some small bridges and ropes you need to use because it gets very steep. It was snowy towards the top even in May. Once you get to the top you need a guide to hike the actual glacier.

  • Walk along the banks of the river and enjoy this crazy landscape.

  • The hike up is hard, but the vieuw you get is amazing

  • Nice camperplace with breathtaking view on the glacier. Challaging hike
