We meet you in Rosendal to check equipment etc. then we drive by car for about 40 minutes to the starting point, please tell us if you do not have your own car (to be sure we have space for you in our minibus, due to corona we do not offer pickup service in 2020). We start with an introduction to safety rules and get familiar with the kayak and equipment.  For the kayak trip in the glacier lake dry suits are used to ensure safety, water is cold. If lucky, there are icebergs in the lake on our way from starting point to the Møsevass Glacier. The view of blue ice coming into the lake is powerful; no one can stop the ice on its way to the lake. We park the kayaks on a beach near the glacier and take lunch.

This is a “young” glacier arm of Folgefonna; the glacier is about 5000 years old, but 1500 years ago, the ice was not present in this valley, guide will tell you more.
