Jondal, porten til Folgefonna!

DSC_2601

Jondal er en bygd i Hardanger som har lange tradisjoner som innfalls port til den kjente isbreen Folgefonna.  I dag er det sommerskisenter på Folgefonna og Jondal har derfor ganske stor trafikk med gjennomreisende til skisenteret!

Jondal is a small settlement in Hardanger which has a history of being the gateway to the glacier ‘Folgefonna’. Today there is a ‘summer skiing center’ at ‘Folgefonna’, and Jondal therefore has a lot of ‘throughway-traffic’ from those visiting the glacier as well as the skiing center.

Jondal ble tidlig kjent blant engelskmenn og tyskere som ville opp til Folgefonna! Derfor ble hotell og restaurantdrift tidlig etablert som næring!

Jondal was early discovered amon englishmen and germans
that wanted to enter the glacier ‘Folgefonna’, thus  a hotel- and restaurant industry  was established very early.

    Looks like an absolutely lovely place. I still wasn’t there in that part of Hardangerfjord, but maybe one day. So much things to see. Ha en kjempefin dag. 🙂

      Vel, nå er Jondal blitt ett sted på den korteste veien mellom Norges 2 største byer og trafikken vil velge denne traseen! nå åpner jo Hardanger broen i neste måned så det blir spennende å se hvilken innvirkning dette vil ha på trafikkbildet?

      My colleague must have missed this one? Yes, you ought top visit Jondal and perhaps the glacier itself?
      In the very end of Hardanger you find Odda. There starts the road to Jondal. It’s not som far once you are in Hardanger!
