Overview
More
Breheimsenteret is a national park centre for both Jostedalsbreen and Breheimen National Park. There is a museum with interactive screens telling the story of the Luster-region, how glaciers are created and a picture slideshow from the whole region. The entrance fee is between 30-60kr depending on group size. This is also the place to book all glacier hiking, kayaking and rafting activities in Jostedal. The restaurant has a great view of Nigardsbreen and is the perfect place to relax after visiting the glacier.

Very simple museum. We visited it because it was included in the fee of the "blue ice hike". We have spend 5 minutes there, I would have felt sorry if I would have payed for the entry.

This striking looking building is remote yet offers superior visitor facilities close to the Nigardsbreen Glacier. You can posit what the building resembles and the architecture is certainly impressive with its exposed GluLam timber structure and sweeping roof. On the ground level floor is a...More

This place is very nice. Use the toll road and the boat it worth it. Boat only take cash. Prebook a guided tour if you wanna get on the ice.

From the huge windows you have a great view of the valley leading up to the Nigårdsbræen and the surrounding area. The staff is friendly and helpful.

A stop over if you are visiting the Glacier. Unique looking building with plenty of information about glaciers. Can be missed if you know about Glaciers.

We visited the glacier center on our way to a guided glacier hike. We thought the exhibits were interesting, though we didn't spend a lot of time. We appreciated having a wide choice of drinks and ice cream after the hike.
