Nature Reserves

Small and almost untouched areas with special habitats or fauna of high scientific value are usually protected as nature reserves. This is the strictest form of protection that can be applied. Within the Sognefjord area there are several nature reserves, for instance bird and wetland reserves such as the Hafslovatnet lake (Luster), Bøyaøyra (Sogndal), Vetlefjordsøyra (Balestrand) and Grånåsmyrane (Aurland). The Skogteigen coniferous forest reserve in Luster, established in 1914, is the oldest nature reserve in Norway. The Nigardsbreen nature reserve (Luster) is connected to the Jostedalsbreen National Park and is probably one of Norway’s best-known nature reserves.
