Loen Active offers adventures starting from Loen. Our main attraction is Via Ferrata Loen, an iron road, a newly built climbing path in the mountains above the Hotel Alexandra. The summer of 2013 we opened the Gjølmunnebridge 750 mas, a suspension bridge across a 170 meter deep canyon. The bridge is 120 meters long and the longest via ferrata bridge in Europe ! In addition we made a new via ferrata after the bridge at Tunga. Both routs meet at Mt Hoven 1011 mas. Summer 2015 we built a 110 m via ferrata in category E (extremly difficult) in the area beneath the Gjølmunnebridge. This is a route only for well experienced via ferrata climbers. At Tunga we made a 36 m long wirebridge, called the Gjølmunnestring, for people who really want to test their fear of heights. Via Ferrata Loen is suitable for active tourists, teambuilding, companies, friends and families; all together a fantastic trip! In short; a spectacular and breathtaking experience in beautiful surroundings above the fjord landscape in Norway. You have to be in general good physical condition, normal duration of the hike is from five to six hours. We recommend to combine the via ferrata tour with visiting the Hoven Restaurant and return with the Loen Skylift cabelcar back to Loen.
