Via Ferrata Loen

An exciting challenge in spectacular scenery. Via Ferrata Loen starts at the Loen Active shop and takes you up to Mt. Hoven (1011 m.). Fantastic views of beautiful mountains, glaciers and fjord. Duration 6-7 hrs. New suspension bridge, the Gjølmunnebrua suspension bridge, the longest via ferrata bridge in Europe.

What is a Via Ferrata?
The name Via Ferrata comes from Italy, where they built an “iron road” in the mountains during the first world war. The essence of a modern via ferrata is a steel cable which runs along the route and is periodically (every 3 to 10 metres (9.8 to 33 ft)) fixed to the rock. Using a via ferrata kit the climber can secure themselves to the cable, limiting any fall.

Loen Active offer guided tours for 5-120 persons.
Focus on safety.
Minimum age is 12 years
All commercial guiding through Loen Active
