Just like other glacier arms in Europe, Kjenndalsbreen has shrunken significantly over the recent years. Though, the magnificent drive along Lovatnet still make a visit a wonderful experience.
Kjenndallsbreen is a glacier arm of Jostedalsbreen, which is by far the biggest glacier in southern Norway. The Kjenndalen valley and the Kjenndalen Glacier lie at the end of the valley Lodalen, 17 km from Loen. There’s a narrow road through Lodalen, following the shores of the beautiful Lovatnet.
