Breheimen National Park (Norwegian: Breheimen nasjonalpark) is a national park that was established in 2009. The park is located in the municipalities of Skjåk and Lom in Oppland county and in Luster in Sogn og Fjordane county, Norway. The park covers 1,671 square kilometres (645 sq mi) of the Breheimen mountain range.

The park is surrounded by three other national parks: Jostedalsbreen National Park, Jotunheimen National Park, and Reinheimen National Park.

The park includes the mountains Hestbreapiggan, Tverrådalskyrkja, and Holåtinden as well as the glaciers Harbardsbreen, Spørteggbreen, and Holåbreen.


In the summer of 2011, a well-preserved man's coat was found that dates back to 300 A.D., making this coat the oldest coat in the country. The coat was found in bed of the melted glacier.
