Skjolden lies along Sognefjellsvegen road, 20 km (12 ml) west of lake Prestesteinsvatnet and Fannaraki mountain. The village is also about 25 km (16 ml) northeast of Gaupne's municipal center and about 35 km (22 ml) northeast of Hafslo. Breheimen National Park is north of Skjolden. It is home of the glaciers Sporteggbreen and Harbardsbreen and the mountain Tverradalskyrkja.

The village of Skjolden was home to the Austrian-British philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889-1951) between 1913-1914. He wrote some of his most important works here.

A must-see is Urnes Stave Church, which is the oldest stave church in Norway, included on UNESCO's World Heritage list. This outstanding example of Scandinavian wooden architecture, combing Viking, Romanesque and Celtic design, was built in the 12th and 13th centuries.

In Jostedalsbreen National Park travellers can see everything from fjords to farms, green valleys, barren mountains and glaciers, with peaks up to 2000 metres. In the heart of the beautiful landscapes stands Jostedal glacier, the largest in mainland Europe, where passengers are able to enjoy a walk on the glacier ice.
