Jostedalsbreen offers an unforgettable scenic experience, with blue ice and marks of how the landscape is formed by ice, rock and water. High summits tower over the large glacier plateau. In the green, lush upland valleys, the many generations of grazing animals have helped shape the landscape. On hot summer days, the floral splendour of the hillsides beneath the glacier is enhanced by the sounds of singing birds and buzzing insects. Jostedalsbreen is one of the largest wilderness areas in southern Norway. Here you can see first-hand how climate change affects the landscape. The national park is accessible to all user groups, and people of all ages will enjoy the variety of experiences on offer.
