Travel Tips for Skjolden

Going to Luster and heading for Nigardsbreen

by xantylaol

"Travelling along the Fjord of Luster"

The town of Luster has given name to the fjord - or the other way around, who knows - and is in many ways a central spot for taking routes up into the mountains to see some of the spectacular nature that is to be found in this area. Check this link for more info:

"Nigardsbreen - an Arm of Jostedalsbreen"

Nigardsbreen is an arm of Jostedalsbreen - which is the biggest single glacier in Norway, and europe actually. If you approach this glacier or any other - for gods sake remember that they are constantly moving and can cave in on you or the nearby water - and the tons of tons of ice can crush you or create mini tsunamis. Give them the same respect as if you were to approach a roaring lion in the wild!

Skjolden, fiord village

by milugares

"Lusterfiord end at Skjolden"

One of the most beautiful fiords of the trip!
The coach bordered the fiord from Gudvagen, and while the driver drove slowly on the extremely narrow road, we admired the impressive landscape: the peaks, the waterfalls, the turquoise blue waters...

"Turquoise waters"

I'm not sure that the scanner makes justice to colours, but the fiords waters are of transparent turquoise blue. Had never seen before!
The reason may be the minerals that glaciars carry together with the ice

"More to see"

There is an impressive picture showing an aerial view of the village and complete fiord in the village webpage:

The web is in Norwegian, but it is very intuitive with good puictures and maps
