The beautiful, untamed nature and the valley´s dramatic history make a visit to Lodalen an experience not to be missed.

Twice, great blocks if stone have fallen from Mt.Ramnefjell into the Lovatnet Lake. The floodwave that was created destroyed the villages of Nesdal and Bødal and 135 people lst their lives. The people of inner Nordfjord will always associate the years 1905 and 1936 with the Lodalen disasters. Historic walk with or without guide.

Why is the Lovatn Lake so green?
The Lovatn lake is green because it contain clay particles and rock dust, carved out by glaciers and swept along by rivers. The glaciers are continuously crushing up rocks and stones. When the glacial water reaches the lakes and fjords, it looks green, especially when the sun shines.

Lodalen is also home to the most easily accessible glacier arm: Kjenndalsbreen, only 160 metres above sea level. Nice photo stop by the bridge. The path to Kjenndal Glacier was improved for the season 2010.  

Boat trips on the Lovatnet Lake on the MS Kjenndal II. See more information below.

The restaurant Kjenndalstova is located at the end of the lake (open in the summer season).
