We hiked up to several glaciers on our recent trip to Norway, but this was a fantastic hike. It is very easily accessible from Odda, but the hike does include several challenging rock scrambles. The run-off from the glacier is so loud as it pounds...More

One of the most beautiful hikes I’ve ever done (and I live in Switzerland where we have so many stunning hikes). This hike doesn’t take long, less than 3 hours if you’re in good shape, and the variety of terrain you see - mountains, glacier,...More

This was the best hike of my life. Why? 1. Views are stunning from the first minutes to the top. 2. It is technically challenging enough, without being too restrictive. 3. It is not too long (3-4 hours). As a bonus, the water is ice-cold,...More

I did this hike couple of days ago. Not sure if it's the hot weather that has caused the ice on the top to melt more rapidly than before but the streams on the path had grown pretty strong. Wooden structures that had been placed...More

Short drive from Odda, about 15 min. The first 5 min of the 1,5 hours estimated time (one way) is flat, after that you walk in fairly steep terrain. The trail is well marked and easy to follow, and there are ropes on the steepest...More

We read about the tedious hike to Trolltunga, and finally made up our mind to go Buarbreen hike instead. It did not disappoint. The hike is beautiful indeed. We parked our car as this Geo Coodinate : 60.044610, 6.477532 Some minor challenge using ropes for...More

The road to the parking is narrow, but not that long. The hike is 3-4 hours depending on your breaks. It takes you through the forest and upwards to the edge of the glacier, absolutely fantastic. The trail is pretty steep and there are ropes...More

It's an amazing hike of approximately 3 hours with some challenging parts, but an amazing view in the end. Definitely worth it :)

Very nice hike with a couple of tough parts with bridges and ropes, but the final view is worth every complicated part!

The bus only to Odda and then on foot. This walk took us the whole day. On the way, huge fields of strawberries. Was beautiful and delicious!

I think yes. Officially it is OK (See the "visit Norway" site). The weather is very important. I would check 2-3 days before. If it is very rainy you should either prepare for very wet weather (boots, raincoat) or drop it... More
