Loen

Mt. Skåla

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.

Selje

Walking across the island of Selja to Selje Monastery

Abbey Road The walk over the island Selja ends where Christianity in Norway started. St Sunniva’s cave and the Selja Abbey are extremely well-preserved reminders keeping the area’s rich past alive. Legend has it that St. Sunniva was was trapped in this cave during a rock avalanche while seeking refuge from the hedonistic King Håkon Jarl, and it has become one of the most important pilgrimage destinations in Norway. The best way to experience Selja is to follow the narrow path - either via the top of the island or along the seaside.

Segestad

Be a mountain farmer for a day Living history! Perched out on a rocky knoll overlooking Oppstrynsvatnet (Oppstryn Lake) lies the abandoned farm called Segestad. The trail up to Segestad, which winds up the mountain beside the mighty Glomnesfoss (Glomnes waterfall), not only takes you high up in the mountains but also on a journey back in time. The farm, which is open for visitors, provides a unique insight into how mountain farmers managed to survive only a few generations ago. On the farm you will find information boards about life here in the old days, and you can even jump around in the hay in the barn!
