  Briksdal glacier

Jostedalsbreen National Park is a national park in Norway that encompasses the largest glacier on the European mainland, Jostedalsbreen. The park was established by royal decree on 25 October 1991, and then in 1998, it was enlarged to the northwest. The park now covers 1,310 square kilometres (510 sq mi), with the glaciers covering about 800 square kilometres (310 sq mi) of the park.

The park lies in the municipalities of Luster, Balestrand, Jølster, Sogndal, Gloppen, Førde, and Stryn. There are three museums and also visitors centers: the Breheimsenteret in Jostedal, Jostedalsbreen nasjonalparksenter in Oppstryn (Stryn) and Norsk bremuseum in Fjærland.

The highest peak in the park is Lodalskåpa at 2,083 metres (6,834 ft). The glacier´s highest point, Brenibba, lies 2,018 metres above sea level while its lowest point is 350 metres above sea level. The glacier has shrunk in recent years, and there are ruins of farms that were overtaken by the glacier in 1750.
