Folgefonna Summer Guide
Folgefonna is a small glacial resort a mere 1200 metres above sea level but with the snow dumped on it all winter there’s plenty left for a bit of boarding in the summer. The highest point on the glacier is 1640meters and although the runs aren’t all that long, the park should keep you happy.
There’s one 1.2km t-bar and a day pass will cost 280KR The resort is located on the west coast of Norway about 90 minutes drive including the ferry from Bergen or 7 hours from Oslo. www.folgefonn.no
