  • the truth that this wonder of nature will not leave indifferent, can see it already it is a gift for the view, we were in the Nigards language, in few places is you can enjoy these views, where the glnaciar Blue stands out among mountains and with your water coming from the glacier with much force, that if getting to the stones is very slippery, so it should go with caution, also there is a boat that brings you a little, wonderful and that penalty which is are melting.

  • When I began to plan my trip to Norway I not imagined that it would have opportunity to visit a glacier. However a friend told me that approaching the National Park of Jostedal was uncomplicated and that the excursion was quite worth. Indeed it was one of the great moments of the trip. We hire a guided tour to make a route for one of the arms of the glacier and the truth is that it was very much worth it. We had to access it crossing a lake in a kayak to then get the crampons and walking for more than 2 hours on the ice. Without a doubt, all a unique experience, since they are very few glaciers that remain in continental Europe.

  • Think that everything eventually disappears, don't bother if you want to go there, before long will melt, the play of light in the glacier are crazy, you have to look at it from many angles, road and pleasant. If we go stop by even just half a day is more than enough.

  • Jostedalsbreen National Park (Norwegian: Jostedalsbreen nasjonalpark) is a national park in Norway that encompasses the largest glacier on the European mainland, Jostedalsbreen. The park was established by royal decree on 25 October 1991, and then in 1998, it was enlarged to the northwest. The park now covers 1,310 square kilometres (510 sq mi), with the glaciers covering about 800 square kilometres (310 sq mi) of the park
  • Gorgeous place! Easy trekkings, went on summer and it was cold. Pretty wild, perfect for nature lovers.
  • Very accessible glacier hikes and beautiful scenery. Many arms accessible from various points at the edges of the park. And at the end of the season mid-Sept felt like we had it all to ourselves with barely anyone around!!
  • Easy walk to glacier. Waterfalls are amazing. They have another waterfall that sounds like it is thundering. Great trails for hiking. They have bouldering and even a climbing rock. Great gift shop.
  • Its really pretty based on my experience on googke maps
