The Gjegnalundsbreen glacier is located in Sogn og Fjordane county, Norway. The 13-square-kilometre (5.0 sq mi) glacier sits on the borders of the municipalities of Bremanger and Gloppen. The glacier sits on the eastern side of the 1,670-metre (5,480 ft) tall mountain Blånibba, inside the Ålfotbreen landscape protection area which also includes the nearby Ålfotbreen glacier. The Nordfjorden and Hyefjorden are located just north and east of the glacier. The village of Hyen lies about 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) south of the fjord.[1]
