Buerbreen Glacier

N 602.486', E 626.311'
2018-06-29
Our rating: 5.80
Overall rating:
For some reason, we decided that walk to this glacier will be an easy one and it will be good idea to stretch our legs one day before the Trolltunga.

The Buerbreen Glacier is part of the large Folgefonna glacier. Located in a picturesque valley, near the city of Odda.

As it turned out - the route is quite difficult with the total climb of 650 meters. In the description it was stated 3 hours, but it took us 5 hours in total. We cannot recommend it, given that there are many other glaciers in Norway that can be viewed without any effort.

At first, you will go on a flat surface and everything will be fine. Water can be taken along the way.

Then through the forest, it is also easy. But then you have to climb the rocks using numerous chains and ropes.

During our ascent, we saw few couples who returned and did not reach the top. You can go up only in good weather. Do not go when the ground is wet since it will not only be more difficult, but simply dangerous.

In the end there will be a view of the glacier, which, however, disappointed us. As we already wrote, in Norway there are enough other glaciers, with much easier treks.

The valley is beautiful and worth a climb even without the glacier.
