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.
Tunsbergdalsbreen Glacier is the longest glacier arm in Norway. It is situated 500 m.a.s.l, in Leirdalen, a side vally of Jostadalen vally. Tunsbergsdalsbreen has untill now been almost impossible to visit, because of its remote location in Jostedalsbreen Glacier National Park. You can now visit this glacier arm together with professional guides.

The landscape around the Lusterfjord is very picturesque, and many great artists have been inspired by the unique beauty of its scenery.
