You'll find this excellent visitors centre in the village of Oppstryn. There's a worthwhile and informative 10-minute film about the glacier, plus exhibits illustrating avalanches and rock falls and a variety of stuffed wildlife. Outside, enjoy its unique garden with more than 300 species of endemic vegetation, each labelled in Norwegian, English and French.

A cluster of picnic tables offers a spectacular vista over the lake.
