The Pulpit Rock (Preikestolen), the most famous tourist attraction in Ryfylke, towers an impressive 604 metres over the Lysefjord.
The third big-wall peak in Ryfylke, after Kjerag and Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock). You're guaranteed a sense of dizzying awe on the Skomakarnibbå with its overhang down to the Jøsenfjorden 700m below. In addition, you're treated with a great view over the Ryfylkearchipelago. A hiking-classic that draws thousands of visitors every year.
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...
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!
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.
