Loen Active offers adventures starting from Loen. Our main attraction is Via Ferrata Loen, an iron road, a climbing path in the mountains above the Hotel Alexandra. We recommend beginners to book their first via ferrata tour with guide. In 2013 we opened the Gjølmunnebridge 750 masl, a suspension bridge across a 160 meter deep canyon. The bridge is 120 meters long and the longest via ferrata bridge in Europe ! We also offer a 110 m via ferrata in category D (extremly difficult). This route is optional, and for experienced via ferrata climbers. In addition we have the optional 36 m long Gjølmunnewirebridge for people who really want to test their fear of heights. In 2018 we built Tors Hammer, an optional extreme route in category E, and an optional brand new very extreme route called Ragnarok in category F for specialists. Before thinking of Ragnarok, you have to do the Tors Hammer twice! Via Ferrata Loen is 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. You can combine the via ferrata trip with visiting the Hoven Restaurant and return with the Loen Skylift.
