Visit the largest icecap in mainland Europe.
The Jostdal glacier (Jostedalsbreen) is the largest icecap in mainland Europe, stretching over nearly half of Jostedalsbreen National Park. Here you will find a number of interesting geological features that have been shaped by ice and water over thousands of years, along with moraines, glacial rivers, lush valleys with steep mountainsides, waterfalls and barren peaks rising out of the glacier.
As one of the largest wilderness areas of southern Norway, the national park has long been an attrac-tive place for hiking and other adventures. For more information about guided hikes, glacier walks or other activities, we suggest visiting one of the park’s visitor centres. Or check out the Norwegian Glacier Museum (Norsk Bremuseum) in Fjærland that features various exhibitions about glaciers and the effects of climate change.View The Fjords
