On my way to Folgefonna | 05-01-2024

In the summer of 2024 I’m going to make a trip to Folgefonna Nasjonalpark and Hardangervidda, Norway. Folgefonna, the third largest glacier on mainland Norway, is the heart of the national park. Here are glacier tongues and icefalls, wild valleys, and raging rivers of rushing meltwater and scenic summer pastures.

In 1999 I drove from Kristiansand to Bergen, via Odda and by the Hardangerfjord. So I passed by Folgefonna Nasjonalpark for the first time.
In my artistic autobiography I wrote: ‘In January 2000 I visit my newborn cousin in Bergen. On a rainy day I went into a bookstore. I saw a wonderful reference book of a Norwegain nature photographer. His book inspired me in an artistic way…

2024 is symbolically a special year for me. It has been 25 years since I met Folgefonna for the first time.
Now I have the desire to ride a part of that ride again, all the way to Odda. I want to admire the Folgefonna National Park with my own eyes.
I am going to take several hikes, take photographs for new inspiration, for new artworks. And meet that nature photographer whose book I bought

In my stories on instagram you can follow my way to Folgefonna; my training, my walks and hikes.
