The Pearl Rosendal
Kayak and glacier in Rosendal
3-day tour. Kayaking and blue ice trip on Folgefonna glacier. Hike to Malmangernuten in Rosendal. There are a lot of highlights on this tour. You paddle on a small lake at the foot of the Folgefonna glacier. You park the kayaks on the shore near the glacier, put on glacier equipment and are ready for a fairy tale experience on blue ice. You can choose if you would like to do a gentle hike on the glacier or try ice climbing – or both. From Rosendal, you hike on your own to Malmangernuten and pay a visit to the Barony Rosendal.
The small village of Rosendal is a gem, and it is perfect for families and groups of friends with slightly different interests and levels of physical fitness. There is something that suits everyone. Rosendal is beautifully situated by the Hardangerfjord between the mountains Skålafjell, Melderskin and Malmangernuten.The Barony Rosendal is the smallest castle in Scandinavia, the only one of its kind in Norway and a major attraction in Fjord Norway. It is famous for its magnificent Renaissance garden and its rich calendar of cultural events, including concerts, courtyard theatre and art exhibitions. There are both easy and more demanding hikes in the area around Rosendal.
The glacier trip on Folgefonna can be customised to include demanding climbing, or, if you prefer, an easier walk on the glacier. You paddle in stable double kayaks that are suitable for beginners. Single kayaks are also available. In the cultural village of Rosendal, you stay at Rosendal Turisthotell, a small, charming hotel built in 1887, surrounded by the fjord, mountains, glacier and waterfalls. The hotel has undergone extensive refurbishment. Its identity is old meets new, redesign and design, knitting, homeliness and a good atmosphere.
