closest Glacier walk from Bergen

Hi, where's the closest Glacier Walk Tour from Bergen?

Is it Folgefonna or Finse?

I am staying in Bergen for 3 nights and would like to spend some time out of the city.

Any suggestion?

Hardangerjokulen glacier near Finse is the easiest glacier to get close to as Finse is on the Bergen to Oslo rail line and you can get there all year round. You can see it quite well from the station (weather permitting) but it takes several hours if you want to join a guided walk to go on it.

Bear in mind that you won't see much if the weather is bad - use www.yr.no to check the forecast and search with the place name. Scroll down the resulting page and you will see recent web cams from the area. The weather on the glaciers is likely to be very different from Bergen.
