The Via Ferrata Loen is a spectacular experience you will never forget. You climb high above the fjord, surrounded by the mountains and the Jostedalsbreen National Park. We end up at Mt. Hoven and Loen Skylift. The view is unbelievable all the way. In summertime and Saturdays, you can combine the Via Ferrata with a brand-new zip line. New 2019: Ragnarok Extreme. Season: 1st of May - 31st of October.

We highly recommend using a guide. Guided tours and gear rental via Loen Active. Return to fjord level by Loen Skylift, or by foot on the mountain road (7+5 km). You can book via Ferrata tour with an instructor at 9, 10, and 11 am, with a maximum of 40 guests per departure. Rental of via Ferrata equipment to experienced climbers. On Saturdays, and every day from 1 July to 15 August, the equipment can only be rented from 2 pm. Otherwise, in the season it may be possible to start before 2 pm (contact Loen Active).

In consultation with the municipal infection control doctor, the Via Ferrata will ONLY be available for guests who book a trip with an instructor or rent via Ferrata equipment at the Loen Active store and register their name and phone number.
