Nordfjord Stryn

Via Ferrata Loen

If you thought the steep hillsides in Nordfjord are impressive to look at, why not impress yourself and climb them all the way up to the top?Admittedly, hanging from a steep mountainside above a fjord is not something you do every day, and you would think it sounds strenuous and somewhat dangerous. However, thanks to a well-prepared climbing track to the top of Hoven (1010 meters above the fjord), most people manage to climb the Via Ferrata trail  (“iron road”) in Loen. A guide is with you all the way and with a harness attached, you can’t fall. It is just a matter of taking in the view!

Via Ferrata Loen starts at Loen Active Base Camp and takes you up to Mt. Hoven (1011 m.). Fantastic views of beautiful mountains, glaciers and the fjord. Duration 6-7 hours. Return with the new Loen Skylift

Price: NOK 1.345 (2019), incl. guide, skylift-ticket, helmet and harness. The climb can be combined with lunch or dinner in the Hoven Restaurant.

New in 2019: Extreme Via Ferrata alternative route
The popular Via Ferrata now has a new route – an extreme alternative with difficulty level F. With this new addition Via Ferrata Loen now has one of the most complete Via Ferrata facilities in Europe. This route is for experienced via ferrata climbers. Age limit: minimum 14 years, accompanied by an adult.  

Suspension bridge Gjølmunnebrua - the longest via ferrata bridge in Europe
The new suspension bridge across a 160 meter deep canyon is 120 meters long, and is the longest via ferrata bridge in Europe. The bridge opened in August 2013. The walk across will definitely give you butterflies. The bridge is located at 750 m.a.s.l. To get there you have to climb the Via Ferrata Loen.

What is a Via Ferrata?
The name Via Ferrata comes from Italy, where they built an "iron road" in the mountains during the first world war. The essence of a modern via ferrata is a steel cable which runs along the route and is periodically (every 3 to 10 metres (9.8 to 33 ft)) fixed to the rock. Using a via ferrata kit the climber can secure themselves to the cable, limiting any fall.
