Have you ever wondered what climate change looks like? A climate park located in Jotunheiman National Park in Norway opened in April to help visitors understand the environmental impact of global warming. At Klimapark kids and adults can observe glaciers, snowdrifts, melt-offs,
permafrost. There are also tours under the Juvfonna
ice patch, the only ice tunnel in Northern Europe.
Archeologists have discovered hundreds of artifacts in the mountains surrounding the park due to unusual glacier melting, some up to 1,700 years old.
Klimapark also offers a summer “Klimacamp” in August, where kids can camp in the area, explore the land, and learn about the history of Norway. The camp is free, but there are a limited number of spots, so campers are selected through an application process.
