The Visitor Centres

The national park has three authorised visitor centres where you can look at, experience, and learn more about nature, climate, and the local communities. Why is the glacier ice blue? Is Jostedalsbreen a remnant of the Last Ice Age? How do avalanches form? What do we know about climate change and how will it affect the glaciers? Learn this and more at our visitor centres.

Breheimsenteret in Jostedalen

Breheimsenteret is the natural starting point if you wish to experience glacier hikes, kayaking, rafting, and nature guiding in the Jostedalen valley.

The characteristic building holds a lunch restaurant, tourist information and museum exhibition, and it offers you an amazing view of Nigardsbreen glacier. The interactive exhibition focuses especially on glaciers and climate in both Jostedalsbreen and Breheimen National Parks, as Breheimsenteret is a visitor centre for both parks. The cinema takes you on a journey to the mighty glaciers through the seasons, from glacier hiking on the blue ice during summer to skiing on the plateau during winter.
