Fjaerland is the gateway to explore the wonderful Jostedalsbreen Glecier. Jostedalsbreen is the biggest glacier in continental Europe and it is covering 487 square km, and lies in the municipalities of Luster, Balestrand, Julster and Stryn. The highest peak in the area is Lodalskapa at 2083 meters.
The Jostedalsbreen National Park was established in 1991, covering 1310 square km. The glacier has shrunk in later years, but there are ruins of farms that were overtaken by the glacier in 1750. There is interesting vegetation along the edge of the glacier.
There are many glaciers that you can visit and touch in Jostedalsbreen National Park. I can suggest the ones I think are the best:
- Supphellebreen Glacier;

-Bayabreen Glacier;

-Briksdalsbreen;

-Nigardsbreen.
