Loen Active offers adventures starting from Loen and Mount Hoven. Our main attraction is Via Ferrata Loen, an iron road, a newly built climbing path to Mount Hoven behind Hotel Alexandra. In 2013 we opened the Gjølmunnebridge 750 mas, 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 E (extremly difficult). This route is optional, and only for experienced via ferrata climbers. We also have a wirebridge for people who really want to test their fear of heights. 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 six to eight hours. You can combine the via ferrata trip with visiting the Hoven Restaurant at 1011 m.a.s.l. and return with the Loen Skylift.
