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.
The hike up to Vidasethovden is an unique experience! At the top, one of the country's most fantastic views is awaiting you: The Sognefjord in it's who...
Visit the wonderful mountains where a troll (according to legend) lived! If you look closely you will find the footprints left by him on the road!
The children who used to tend the cattle here were told to be careful, especially in the dark or during thunderstorms. There is a place in the mountain that is said to be troll country and traces can be found, if you look closely. There is a troll's footprint named "Røsefoten". Infact, legend has it that the troll grew too tall and had to sit, which left a large imprint in the mountain. More markings are to be found in the valley, Tveit Hunnedalen. One in particular is said to be his large rope bag which has left an imprint on the mountainside.
Hiking through the river and mountain scenery of one of the finest peaks in the area.
Day trip within the UNESCO area Nærøyfjorden including a side trip to the glacier Fresvikbreen
Route: Engi - Jashaugbu
Total hiking time: 8 hours
The first path of this walk is along a number of lakes and the path is difficult in places. Then you come to the remarkable Mount Blåfjell before walking through a narrow gorge that leads you to the lush Øyestøldalen.
The lush Blåstøldalen valley is a striking contrast to the barren mountains around Mount Kjerag. The day’s leg of the round trip passes Blåstølen, an excellent summer pasture farm where only the foundations of the farm remain as testimony to its past.
This walk takes you through several narrow valleys and you are, at times, surrounded by towering mountainsides. There is a greater variety of flora to be found here than on the other walks.
