Luster is situated in Western Norway, at the end of the Sognefjord, 200 km from the coastline of the North sea, and where Europe’s longest fjord meets 3 National Parks, Jostedalsbreen, Breheimen and Jotunheimen. Luster is one of the largest municipalities in Norway, 2.700 sq.km.
Luster has just over 5000 inhabitants. We see many young people without any previous connections to the area settling here, helping create growth.
Many find jobs within Luster, and nearby Sogndal and Leikanger offer good jobs requiring university level education. Both public and private institutions are located in our neighbouring municipalities, like University College, Western Norway Research Center, County administration, Administration of public roads, Norwegian Welfare Administration, Norwegian Directorate for IT, and so on. That means that the many well educated young people can find attractive jobs.
