Description

The Kjenndalen valley and the Kjenndalen Glacier lie at the end of Lodal valley, 17 km from Loen and a 15 minute walk from the Jostedal Glacier's lowest glacier arm. At the end of Lovatn Lake you´ll find Kjenndalsstova, a cafe which is open from May to September. Between 1980 and 1997 the glaciers grew by over 300 metres, but in the last few years the glacier arms have actually been retreating.

The road to Kjenndal is winter closed.
