Spectacular views of the whole of western Norway await you at the cairn. Below, to the west, lies Skåldalen, the shieling for Åsen farm. With its many rocky and snow-covered sections, the ascent of Vangsen is not for the faint-hearted. Vangsen, Jostedalen’s highest mountain, is easily accessible in the summer thanks to the Vanndalsvatnet access road. The trail is considered one of Norway’s best summit trails for skiers because of the heavy snowfall that lies for a long time. Vangsen means ploughshare, and when you look at the mountain from the bothy at Mannen, the name makes perfect sense.

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.
