Jostedalsbreen National Park

  • Rådhusvegen 1, GAUPNE
  •  /  km From You
Overview

Almost half of the Jostedalsbreen National Park is covered by the Jostedalsbreen glacier, which is the largest glacier in mainland Europe.

The national park is famous for its wide variety of natural environments all within a short distance of each other, ranging from valleys with lush vegetation to bare mountain and glacier landscapes. A short hike in this area is like hiking from one season to another. The Jostedalsbreen National Park is easiest to access in Jostedalen (Luster), Fjærland (Sogndal) and Veitastrondi, and you can participate in glacier hikes and visit glacier museums in Jostedal and Fjærland.

 

The purposes behind establishing the National Park were:

- to protect a large, varied glacier area with associated fauna, flora and geology.

- to permit enjoyment of nature not dependent upon technical facilities.

- to protect our cultural heritage.
