A day trip to Bondhus lake

Enjoy a hiking day in the Folgefonna National Park with the stunning views of the mountains and the clear waters of Bondhus lake.



The clear turquoise water in the lake, gorgeous view, and magnificent glacier attract tourists nowadays and dating back to the 1800s.

Bondhusdalen is situated only one tunnel away from Odda. The area is a very popular hiking destination with a well-designated parking lot and an easily accessible trail. There is a 100 NOK (10 euro) parking fee.


From there to the lake, the path follows a river, surrounded by the enormous mountains of the National park. The duration of a round hike, more of a walk, is 2 hours (from P to the lake). If you want to walk around the lake, plan 2 hours more.


Arriving at the lake, you will be fascinated by the clear turquoise waters and breathtaking views. On the other side of the lake, on top of the mountain, you will see part of the Bondhusbreen Glacier.
