Moods of Norway

A wide river enters the town from the east after meandering through the fertile lower valley, Stryn Valley, from the charming Stryn Lake. At the shore of the lake the Jostedalsbreen National Park Centre is situated. At the east end of the lake the road enters the narrower Hjelledalen and shortly zigzags up some three hundred metres to the entrance of the first of the three tunnels of the mountain highway leading to Geiranger and Grotli.
The southernmost of the three short branches at the inner end of Nordfjord terminates at Olden from which a lovely valley, Oldedalen, strikes due south for some 20 kilometres between slopes rising sharply to more than 1700 metres to the edge of the Jostedals glacier. The turbulent river which feeds the Olden and Floen Lakes and forms magnificent falls two kilometres from the village, comes from the glacier tongues of the Jostedals glacier, lining the head of the valley around the pointed Middagsnibba (1440 metres). Briksdal glacier is a part of the Jostedal glacier icefield, which is the largest glacier on the European mainland.
