The tour starts with a scenic drive, and you will be surrounded by nature. Midway through the ride, the driver guide will pass the Jostedalsbreen National Park Center.
The national park is known for its various natural elements close to each other. This gives the park a specific personality that cannot be replicated. Thanks to the park’s features, it offers a variety of activities for the locals, such as kayaking, hiking, historical walks/strolls, and more.
The Josteldalbreen is not only the name of the park, but it also belongs to the biggest glacier in the European continent. Whether you plan this tour during the winter or summer, it is beautiful in both seasons, as each season has its charm.
Besides the exhibitions in the park, they also offer indoor displays. Here you get to know how life in the valleys was before our generation. You can also see what equipment they previously used for hiking on the glacier. Also, the exhibition explains how the glaciers formed the spectacular environment around you.
If you are more of a plant, tree, and flower lover, the Botanical garden is worth visiting. Here you can relax and take in the breathtaking sight. There are more than 200 trees, plants, and flowers planted to represent the local flora in the garden. It is divided into zones, and each zone has flora from different places in and around the park.
There is also a Geological park where you can see other rocks and read about the characteristics and history over millions of years. While you stroll around this park, look in the distance and appreciate the outline of the mountains and the clear lake beneath it.
The whole national park is surrounded by valleys and steep cliffs, allowing you to take some of the most beautiful pictures. After touring around the park, you can enjoy a cup of coffee, or eat something, while being in the center of the stunning views.
After the visit to Josteldalbreen, your panoramic drive continues to Lovatnet. Lovatnet is one of the most mesmerizing lakes in Norway. The green color is so bright that it almost seems unreal. The experience does not diminish, whether you look at the lake from a boat or the shore.
You will hear more about the history of settlements taken by one of the worst natural disasters in Norwegian history. It dates back to 1905 and 1936. Both times were hard for the Norwegians since they had to start again, but the present results were spectacular.
At the end of the tour, your driver-guide will take you back to the cruise port in Olden.
