Jondal -the Folgefonna village
The amazingly short distance from
fjord to glacier is what makes the experience unique. You’ll start
the day by the glacier and in the evening find yourself in a kayak
or by a bonfire on the beach. Both Folgefonn Summer Ski Centre and
Folgefonni Breførarlag offer a range of activities on as well as
around the glacier.
The centre of Jondal has a distinct
architecture with its Swiss-style buildings with stone roofing and
well-kept orchards linked together by narrow gravel roads. Among
the facilities available are grocery stores, accommodation, beautiful
beaches, bicycle hire, GPS trails and boat hire. At Herand Landscape
Park you’ll fi nd trails as well as a climbing wall, art gallery,
petroglyphs, boat building museum, water-powered saw and pizza restaurant.
Both villages offer friendly guest harbours where boating enthusiasts
can tank up.
