The beautiful, untamed nature and the valley´s dramatic history make a visit to Lodalen an experience not to be missed. At the head of the valley lies Kjenndalsbreen glacier, which is the lowest-lying offshoot of Jostedalsbreen glacier. Further down the Lodalen valley lies a charming summer pasture farm called Breng.
Twice, great blocks of stone has fallen from Mt.Ramnefjell into the Lovatnet Lake. The floodwave that was created destroyed the villages of Nesdal and Bødal. 135 people lost their lives. The people of inner Nordfjord will always associate the years 1905 and 1936 with the Lodalen disasters. Historic walk with or without guide.
The Lovatn lake is green because it contain clay particles and rock dust, carved out by glaciers and swept along by rivers. The glaciers are continuously crushing up rocks and stones. When the glacial water reaches the lakes and fjords, it looks green, especially when the sun shines.
