Høgste Breakulen is the highest point on the glacier Jostedalsbreen. It is located inside the Jostedalsbreen National Park on the border of the municipalities of Stryn and Luster in Sogn og Fjordane county, Norway. Lodalskåpa, a nunatak 15 kilometres (9.3 mi) to the northwest, and Brenibba, another nunatak that is 12 kilometres (7.5 mi) to the northwest, are both higher than Høgste Breakulen, but they are not covered by the glacier.[1][2][3]
