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!

Gloppen

Ryssdalshornet

The Hornet’s rest Take it easy up on top of Ryssdalshornet, affectionately know as Hornet. It's not every day you feel like you are in the middle of a postcard. Ryssdalshornet is the subject of many a photo shoot and is best seen from the town of Sandane. The pyramid-shaped peak rises from Breimsvatnet (Breim’s Lake) and it's easy to find your way up to Ryssdalsstøylen and the trail that leads onwards. There is some light scrambling on the way, and you will find a rope at some stage to boost you up a steep section, from where you can look forward to the summit and a well-deserved rest.

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”!
