In Flam you could try the Flam Guideservice:

I would think that if you join a guided glacier walk the service would provide appropriate equipment.

PS I think that Norwegians call trekking poles "gåstaver" (walking sticks).

Thank you for the good suggestions. I won't be walking on a glacier, just like having them for climbing hills. It turns out that some hotels let you use them for free.
