Overview
More
Norway's third largest glacier. In 2005 Folgefonna National Park was opened, which at the time was Norway's twenty fifth national park. Folgefonna is known for its dramatic and beautiful scenery. Here you will find fjords, mountains, lakes, rivers and water falls. There are lots of things to see in the park, and this makes the area one of the country's most important destinations. Access trails start at Rullestad in Etne, at Bergsto or at Mosnes (by boat).

A stunning national park. Lots to do here including glacier walking and plenty of hikes. Spent a couple of days here at the end of March. Lots of snow still but great scenery.

Quite a drive from where we were staying in Loftus (about 1.5 hours) but well worth it! Once you get to the gate of the park, you pay a small fee (Visa cards work) and then just enjoy the drive! Glacier ponds, sheep, incredible views...More
