Jostedal Glacier

From the innermost part of the Jostedal valley, about an hour's drive from Solvorn, you can get a good view of the largest glacier in mainland Europe. About 600 metres at its thickest, with an area of about 487 square kilometres, it spreads across almost half of the national park. There is also a glacier centre here, offering a range of activities for all ages. This is the place to go if you want to try glacier walking.
