Two-hour guided tour on Mount Fløyen with great views of Bergen!
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.
Experience the Briksdalsbreen Glacier at close quarters on one of our guided trips on the lake to which the glacier tongue descends.

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.
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!

This tour takes you out on the Lyngenfjord, where steep mountains plunge into the fjord. On the tour there are good possibilities to see the local birdlife, sea eagles can often be seen as they hunt for food.
On board you can enjoy the view of the Lyngen Alps, while trying your luck with fishing. Our boat is both solid and safe, the crew is knowledgeable and experienced and will take you out on a fishing trip on the fjord.
No visit to the Lyngen area would be complete without experiencing at least one of the many glaciers up close and personal. Here you can see how the glacier has formed the valley and you can see how the forces of nature affect the landscape.
Along the route there are information signs that give you information about the flora and fauna found in the area. You can also see how the glacier has retreated in the past years, when walking up the valley.
