Bretun: The topography shows clear evidence of
climatic fluctuations since the last ice age. The walk will touch upon the
following themes: 10.000 year moraine: When melting water from the American
continental ice sheet caused changes in the climate of Norway. – The gigantic
rock avalanche: Ice has “held up” the steep hillsides for 100.000 years (during
the last ice age).When the ice melted parts of Bjåfjellet rumbled down. We have
arranged the route in order to traverse this oldest of all recorded landslides
in Norway. – A bit of glacier history – a bit about flora and fauna. Approx. 2.5
hours round trip.
Nature trail from the car parking uphill to the glacier, approx. 1,5 hours round
