trip in Juklavassbreen (starts from the Summer Skicentre
You will meet
us in the morning breeze from the glacier. In anticipation of a
different landscape ahead we find our way past running water and
over burnished slopes of naked rock. At length we'll find ourselves
up on the horizon and the glacier lies before us.
forces hardness in ice! We rope ourselves together and step out
onto Folgefonna. We set off, through frozen valleys and past conical
towers of ice, in search of a fairy tale in blue. If you seek excitement
you may climb the 20-meter high precipices of ice. If, on the other
hand, you seek a more meditative experience you will find it as
we cross the thousand-year-old desert of ice; apparently at rest,
but in perpetual change. Moving constantly towards its inevitable
fate in the emerald waters of Lake Jukla. You will feel your spikes
biting into the ice and the pleasure of teamwork with those who
share the same climbing rope. You are safe in an alien world! Finally
you will feel how the white plateau lifts you up to give you a breathtaking
view of the ocean to the west. Down at the fjord once more you will
be embraced by the pale greens of young birches on the hillsides.
You will probably now have the untouched glacier landscape and the
view of the ocean in west branded into your memory for ever!
Fits everyone over
12 years in normal good shape. The tour starts 10:30 from the Summerskicenter
in Jondal (1200m a.s.l.). The Glacier fall consists of both calm,
flat ice and more challenging crevasse areas. The tour is adjusted
to the participator wishes and condition. In the middle of the blue
ice we take a break with view over the North Sea and the Rosendalsalps.
We tell you about the culture and the physical Geography. In the
end we walk back in the afternoon light with fjord and Mountains
