#2 of 9 in Parks in Odda
Buarbreen or Buerbreen is a glacier in the municipality of Odda in Hordaland county, Norway. It is an offshoot of the large Folgefonna glacier. The small glacial arm reaches down into the Buerdalen valley, just southwest of the town of Odda. The glacier is split into two parts, one on either side of a small mountain peak. Both sides drain into the Jordalselvi river which flows out through the valley into the lake Sandvinvatnet.

  • Recommend! Amazing views of the glacier and the lake, pleasant trekking to the tongue of the glaciers, the route contains elements of climbing (suspended ropes to assist on which we pull the hands to enter the more steep and slippery stones) in several places you have to go A small mud, slipside after the rain, a little windy, a route not for visitors that animals and people with fear of altitude.

  • Very well designed track and entertaining for kids. Physically demanding. Great views of Buarbreen glacier. We decided to change our plans from Trolltunga (too long) to this glacier instead. It was a right decision. Really worth the hike
  • 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, forest, streams, waterfalls - is spectacular. The trail is rocky and steep in parts, requiring use of ropes and ladders to scramble up some of the slopes. You also have to cross a few muddy, wet areas, so be sure to wear good hiking shoes. Enjoy!
