Where Europe's longest fjord, the Sognefjord, stretches deep into the country and meets Jotunheimen and the Jostedalsbreen Glacier, you'll find the municipality of Luster.
Luster, which by area is one of the largest municipalities in southern Norway, is a fascinating part of Norway - a miniature of western Norway - with breathtaking fjords, steep mountains, water-abundant waterfalls, blue glaciers and luxuriant valleys.
The 5000 inhabitants in the municipality make their living out of agriculture, production of berries and fruit, industry and hydropower. Norway and Luster is at its busiest in the summer, since summer is the main tourist season. For those who can choose we recommend the spring and the autumn seasons. They are just as beautiful, but far more peaceful and quiet.
The green and luxuriant spring in Luster is particularly beautiful. The contrasts in the nature are strong, with blooming fruit trees near the fjord and snow still covering the hill sides. Spring skiing has become a popular activity.
The autumn has other qualities. The high mountains are at their most beautiful when the woods and heather change colour. The mountain area near Sognefjellet, Fortun and Skjolden offers favourable conditions for small-game shooting. In the fjord, rivers and lakes you are in for hours of fun, fighting salmon, trout, cod and coalfish. In the wintertime we can offer you the longest ski tow in the country, Heggmyrane, as well as prepared cross-country ski tracks.
Many use the winter for adventure ski-roving to the glaciers of Nigardsbreen, Jostedalsbreen or Breheimen/ Jotunheimen where the peaks are easy to reach and the view breathtaking.
