Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Sit back and enjoy the view from the bus as you make your way from the port at Olden, en route to the breath-taking Jostedal National Park. This exciting half-day excursion is a wonderful opportunity to see Norway up close, starting with a drive along the River Stryn. Accompanied by your guide you will then tour this amazing park which features an awesome glacial backdrop. The park is home to some of the biggest inland ice sheets in Europe, and incredibly, some sections are over 1,200 feet deep.

At the park's Visitors' Center, you will be able to view the many fascinating exhibits, and 3D displays of the glaciers. Enjoy watching a short film about the geography of the park, its scenic wonders, and wildlife, before browsing their gift shop for souvenirs.

Afterwards, you will drive to the historic Videseter Inn, which dates back to 1903. Here you will be able to sample traditional Norwegian cakes, accompanied by tea or coffee, while you take in the sweeping views of the Hjelle Valley.

Once you have finished your snack, you will walk to the amazing Buldrefossen Falls, which plummet 240 feet into a deep gorge. There will be time for pictures before you head back to Olden, via the old Stryn Road, and alongside the stunning turquoise river that runs through the valley.
