A comprehensive leaflet detailing all the various walks in Jostedalsbreen is widely available across the region and at the national park’s three information centres, (wjostedalsbre.no). These are the Norsk Bremuseum, on the south side of the glacier near Mundal; the Breheimsenteret on the east side at the Nigardsbreen; and the Jostedalsbreen Nasjonalparksenter (daily: May & Sept 10am–3pm; June–Aug 10am–6pm; exhibitions 80kr; t57 87 72 00) in Oppstryn, 20km east of Stryn on Highway 15. Each of the centres has displays on all things glacial and sells books, souvenirs and hiking maps.
