Description

The nature in Breheimen National Park is very versitile. It ranges from green valleys and naked mountain tops to streaming rivers and glaciers. The area is connected to Jostedalsbreen National Park and offers good opportunities for hiking, skiing, glacier walking, climbing and summit tours.

The Norwegian Tracking Association (DNT) has well marked trails, self-serviced and staffed cabins both within and in the areas surrounding the national park.

In Breheimen National Park you can also find remains of cultural heritages tracing back 6000 years, proving people has vacated this area since early stone age. In addition the area is essential in the protection of endangered species of certain birds and plants. If you are observant and with a little luck you can spot large predators and raptorial birds.
