Buarbreen, Odda

5.0
#2 of 7 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.
Buarbreen is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Odda Edition.

    the Buarbreen is a quite challenging hike, with some steep points but nothing impossible with attention and patience, and also the path is well fitted during the hardest points. During all the way to ...  more »

    Nice walk. End point view of the glacier. Every now and then with upstart climbing ropes. Takes into account about 5 hours. Return trip

    With my friend we went to Buer, where a parking lot is taking you to the climb can begin. Parking costs 150 NOK and there can be charged to a credit card. It is also possible to start from Odda Camping, but then it is still a piece of extra walk (just about a smaller road). The route to the Buerbreen glacier is really wonderful, and a glacier is something you don't want to miss to so close in the neighbor to come! almost all the way you walk along the rapid river and the surrounding area is beautiful. There are some more difficult pieces in which you're using ropes pretty style up must (Please keep this in mind), but the route is not very long (about 2 hours up). In addition, there are also beautiful views on the glacier but also on the Valley! If you go this route is going to run it is important to have good mountain shoes, and some water! In short, the route is beautiful, not too long and the end result is also super nice. All in all, it is great and certainly a trip to do for people who walk with a little more of a challenge!
