Stryn is a small town with about 7000 inhabitants, founded relatively late - in the 19th century - by British fishermen. Its great natural location, within Nordfjord, turned Stryn into an important tourist attraction. Maybe a bit surprisingly, the town is preferred during the summer, being known especially for the famous Sommerskisenter, an alpine skiing run on the Jostedal glacier; this is a real magnet for photographers excited to take pictures of local beauties skiing in bikini. Besides the ski facilities, what's real magnificent about Stryn is the nature of the surroundings; you can admire here the famous Briksdalsbreen glacier or you can enjoy the more peaceful Bodalsbreen. The whole area is the perfect place for glacier and mountain hiking, rafting or salmon fishing.
