The last installment of our roundup of spots to ride this summer takes in the glacier in Folgefonna. Ever seen those crazy sunset shots? Folgefonna? Ever heard tales of crazy all-nighters with Norwegian girls? Folgefonna. Cliff jumping, fjord swimming and skateboarding? Folgefonna it. It ain’t surprising this bad boy’s been going for over a decade and a half.
At this legendary Norwegian camp, now in its 15th year, you can ride all day and then go chill in the sea when you’ve had enough shred time, plus being that you’re way up north the sun barely sets so there’s some epic evening scenics. From June 21 to July 10 the guys will be on point to make sure everything’s set up right, with lakeside lodgings, mini ramps, food stands and more offered for campers. In the park you can expect plenty of kickers, rails and boxes all groomed with love but sadly there’s no pipe. €450 gets you housing, liftpass, coaching, activities, and daily transportation. If you just want to ride the glacier, an adult day pass is 325 Kronor but for freestyling you’re definitely best off getting on one of the bangin’ Folgefonna camps.
