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.
