 Jostedalsbreen glacier

Supphellebreen is a glacier in the Fjærland located about 10 kilometres north of the village of Fjærland. It is located inside Jostedalsbreen National Park. It´s a side branch of the main Jostedalsbreen glacier. The glacier is split into an upper and a lower part, with a non-glaciated area between. The glacier reaches down to 60 m.a.s.l., the lowest glacier level in southern Norway. The Bøyabreen glacier lies just northwest of Supphellebreen.

The landscape in Fjærland has been shaped by glaciers through successive ice ages during the last 2,5 to 3 million years. Towering mountains and U-shaped valleys surround large delta areas which results from the accumulation of sediment supplied by the glacier rivers.

The Norwegian Glacier Museum is located in Fjærland. The museum´s stated purpose is to "collect, create and disseminate knowledge about glaciers and climate" - it provides information about the glacier Jostedalsbreen and the Jostedalsbreen National Park and also houses the Ulltveit-Moe Climate Centre. The museum is open from April through October, daily.
