...Breathtakingly beautiful, stunning, imposing are only a few words to describe this view...driving through this high mountains that surrounding you must be overwhelming...Thanks Tone!!

Nice Europe stamp: Hiking at Mount Gaustatoppen.
(Issued 19-04-2013)

In the region of Sognefjord and Jostedal you will find the highest mountains in Norway.

The largest glacier in Northern Europe, Jostedalsbreen, 487 km2 , covers the high mountain plateau northwest of Jostedalen.The valley of Jostedalen offers spectacular scenery, mainly shaped by glacial erosion.
 Hanging valleys are found on both sides and can be seen as bowl-shaped openings high up on the hillsides.
