Nordfjord's many high mountains are located in the Jostedalsbreen National Park. The park is home to the largest glacier on the European mainland and it is a perfect playground for ski-touring adventures. The possibilities for adventure are endless.

Several companies offer guided trips. Some of these also have courses in mountain, snow and ice craft. If you are tempted by a guided adventure, make sure you check out the mountains around the villages of Stryn and Eid. On the list of favourites, the spectacular mountain of Skåla (1,848 meters above sea level), situated by Loen, is said to be the longest nonstop downhill run in Norway. Here you will actually find a tower-like stone building on the summit.  This impressive ‘hut’ is owned by the Mountain Touring Association, sleeps 20 people and is open to members all year round.

The season is long, from early December through late May, and then the summer skiing season takes over in Stryn.
