From the still waters and snow-capped mountains of the Nordfjord to the mighty glacier at Jostedalsbreen National Park, this is true nature.
There are several kiosks on the quayside who offer excursions, often a lot cheaper than onboard excursions.
It is possible to make a day trip on the glacier bus to the Briksdalen valley with the beautiful Briksdalsbreen glacier. The bus departs from the bus station in Stryn and waits at Briksdalsbre Fjellstove, leaving you plenty of time to walk up to the glacier.
You can experience the frozen cascade of the million year old Briksdal Glacier, which is the best-known of the Jostedal Glacier's many icy arms. The beautiful Lodalen Valley can be explored by boat on the ice-green, glassy Lovatn Lake and the wild Kjenndalen. Kjenndal Glacier is one of the largest arms of Jostedal Glacier. The visitor center for Jostedalsbreen National Park is located in beautiful surroundings on the banks of Lake Stryn, and provides in-depth information about the glacier in the form of film and various exhibitions. Norway's best summer skiing center is located on Mt. Strynefjellet on the glacier plateau.
