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.
A walk of contrasts
If you want to get the most out of the top of Ljøsuregga, you‘ll have to sneak through the rock piles.
This is a trip full of contrasts! On the way up to Ljøsuregga, the mountain experiences are virtually lining up for you. Firstly, you’ll pass a multitude of swimming holes up along the lush river to Kjenndalsvatnet (Lake Kjenndal). Then from boulder to boulder you walk up through the rocky debris towards the summit, before it gradually flattens out, when you’ll probably notice a feeling of freedom coming over you. Then finally, a beautiful flat plateau awaits, providing views in all directions, and you’ll feel on top of the world!
Kattanakken (the cat’s neck) - where no-one thought it possible to hike. How wrong could they be!
When the weather is fine here, it’s showtime! From the top of Kattanakken you will see Briksdal Glacier in all its glory far down below, surrounded by rugged mountains and cascading waterfalls. Your admission ticket to this show is your own exertion - a solid but feasible workout up steep terrain and then some scrambling as you approach the final ridge. From some angles this hardly looks possible, but don’t listen to what they say about curiosity killing the cat, as scaling this cat’s neck is very achievable.
