Interesting building, disappointing exhibition
Jul 2020
The interesting building and the beautiful location charms you into coming in and then you find out there is very little relevant information inside. Only the film about the glaciers is interesting, otherwise mostly known information presented in a treacherous way. I found the price of the ticket too expensive for what they offer inside.

Not open
Aug 2020 • Couples
It was not open when it was informed online that it was supposed to be open, had to visit the place and read the note on the door to see it was closed. No reason to be closed.

Amazing place for active tourism
Aug 2019
Here you'll find one of the most visited places in Norway. However, if you're smart enough to dive into the centres' websites you'll find superb alternatives which will make you feel as a complete explorer, including the confidence that a professional guide offers.

The center is conveniently located right off Rv15. We stopped there to get some information on the glaciers and received the most comprehensive overview of the subject and how to get there from an excellent and knowledgeable attendant.

Excellent park centre with lots of exhibits and film explaining how the glacier was formed. Has a nice coffee shop, souvenir shop and toilets. Also next to a huge lake with some nice paths to walk and picnic benches.

Mind-blowing helicopter ride
Aug 2018 • Couples
As it was my birthday while we were in the are Mrs Mono kindly bought me a helicopter flight over the national park, mountains, lakes and flords which offered breath-taking views of everything in the area, but especially the Jostedal Glacier.

For security reasons, we weren't allowed to fly directly over the glacier, but we got as close as possible, and I would recommend this extra without a doubt - I would have sacrificed dinner and drinks were it a question of money - a once in a lifetime experience!

Not guaranteed to see a glacier here!
Aug 2018 • Family
This is basically the information centre, situated in the middle of the national park. You can see a short film and exhibition and stop off for a coffee. It's situated on Lake Stryn, which has stunning views! We were lucky to see a couple of glaciers in the distance (this is not always possible). There are walks available to get a closer look, and bus tours operating from nearby towns. It's a beautiful area, but the centre itself is not a substantial attraction on it's own and probably over priced. However, we're happy to contribute to anything that helps maintain this incredible landscape.
