Image by G Lanting

Jostedal Glacier National Park is located on Norway's west coast of, northeast of  Bergenon on Sognefjord.

Jostedal is the largest glacier in continental Europe. It can be accessed from the Glacier Bus or on foot.

This You Tube video follows a hiker as he approaches the glacier and then we follow his careful walk among the pitted crevasses of the glacier itself.

As well as opportunities for mountain climbing and glacier exploration, the park has extensive facilities for camping, glacier lake kayaking, and whitewater rafting. Located beside another large park, the much-visited Jostedal Park also has a bed and breakfast, a museum and a hotel.
