Loen

Lodalskåpa

High on glaciers Long live the Queen of Western Norway! The well-known nickname for Lodalskåpa, Vestlandsdronninga (the Queen of Western Norway), speaks volumes about just how majestic this mountain is and how royal you will feel when you are at the top! The trip from Bødalsetra up to the cairn on the 2083-metre summit is a long but delightful journey from lush pastures to the snow-covered glacier. The trip does present its challenges: be prepared for some rigorous inclines, some walking on snow and ice, and some rather steep scrambling up the final approach. But once at the top you’ll be rewarded with a wide view over the National Park and an ice landscape you could hardly have imagined.

Hornindal

Mt. Hornindalsrokken

Rokken roll There are many mountains that vie for our attention in the Nordfjord area, but it’s Hornindalsrokken (Rokken) that really stands out. With her sharp, pointy profile it is almost impossible not to notice this mountain top north of Hornindalssætra. But what does the world look like from her summit? Hornindalsrokken, or "Rokken" as she is affectionately known, is tougher than she first appears to be. From Sætredalen the trail is quite steep, but is surprisingly easy for mountain hikers. And there's only one thing to say about the view: it “rokks”!

Byrkjelo

Mt. Eggenipa

Scramble up the Egg Eggenipa is eye candy for those who drive past it. But why not just stop your car and climb to the top? You too can be an eye-catcher. Seen from Byrkjelo, the freestanding Eggenipa rises majestically at the entrance of the Våtedalen (Wet Valley). The hike up to the summit is actually easier than it looks. From the parking lot at Øvredalen there is a short steep section, and from then the egg will need a little scrambling along the surprisingly broad ridge. When you finally reach the beacon you can relish the feeling of being noticed - that moment when you are the garnish atop this mouth watering mountain.

Loen

Via Ferrata Loen

Hit the wall! 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!

Loen

Mt. Skåla

Scale the heights of Skåla If you want to get to the top in life, you have to be prepared for some uphill battles. To reach the top of Skåla (1848 m), you won’t find a longer uphill stretch in the whole of Norway. Skåla - this imposingly beautiful giant of a mountain - towers over the village of Loen. A good man-made track winds its way through the rocky terrain a whopping 1848 vertical metres from the shoreline of the fjord. Skålatårnet  - the tower at the summit - is not just the kind of DNT (Norwegian Trekking Association) self-service cabin where you spend the night or simply whip up a well-deserved warm cup of coffee on the summit. This was originally built as a sanatarium to cure illness, and the place hasn’t lost its remedial qualities, as there can scarcely be anything healthier than fjord views and a cool glacial breeze.
