What people are saying about Jostedalen



Tshering, our guide, was fantastic. Set a pace that we could all maintain. Selected timely stops, gave great guidance on climbing. The weather, unfortunately, was terrible — steady rain and howling winds. We hiked the glacier in a cloud bank and skipped the summit due to weather.
