Route 55 across the Sognefjell mountain area between Luster and Lom is the highest and most impressive mountain pass in Northern Europe (highest point 1430 meters), and it has been awarded the status of National Tourist Route because of the spectacular and wild mountain scenery it passes through in the Jotunheimen National Park.
The landscape around the Lusterfjord is very picturesque, and many great artists have been inspired by the unique beauty of its scenery.
The Tour de Jotunheimen is a 430-kilometre-long bicycle race, which starts in Lærdal before crossing the Filefjell, Valdresflya and Sognefjell mountains and ending in Sogndal. The race is quite an experience, but it is only suitable for really well-trained cyclists. However, you can also take part in a shorter version called the Mini Jotunheimen, in which case you cycle the leg from Lom across the Sognefjell mountains and cycle along the northern shore of the Lusterfjord to Sogndal. The race is held at the beginning of July every year.
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.
This is one of the most accessible glaciers, where you can peer into the blue ice at very close range, and everyone above the age of five can join guides on glacier walks.
Almost half of the Jostedalsbreen National Park is covered by the Jostedalsbreen glacier, which is the largest glacier in mainland Europe.
The national park is famous for its wide variety of natural environments all within a short distance of each other, ranging from valleys with lush vegetation to bare mountain and glacier landscapes. A short hike in this area is like hiking from one season to another.
