Folgefonna is the third largest ice cap in Norway, and is famous for its dramatic and beautiful scenery. The Folgefonna peninsula with its fjords, mountains, rivers, lakes and icefalls is one of the greatest tourist magnets in Norway.
Organized tourism began as early as 1833 when tourists went by foot and horse-drawn sledges over the glacier from Sundal to Tokheim in Odda. This is still a popular route, and can be booked throughout the summer.
You can get to the Folgefonna peninsula by car, bus or express boat.
At the Folgefonna National Park-centre in Rosendal you can get more information about the history, activities and traveling in the national park.
There are several gateways to the national park, where you can find information about the landscape, accommodation and activities.
