1-day Loen Via Ferrata to Mt. Hoven, Nordfjord


Join one of our experienced and certified guides on a 1 day trip on the Loen via ferrata on Mount Hoven at Nordfjord in Norway.


1 Day

May, Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep, Oct




  • Test yourself on the tough, but rewarding Loen via ferrata in Norway.
  • Gaze at the beautiful surroundings from the top of Mount Hoven.
  • Enjoy a scenic ride down from the peak's summit on the Loen Skylift.


The steep hillsides of Nordfjord in Norway are tremendous. A true wonder to gaze upon, they are even more incredible when seen up close and climbed. And on this full day adventure, you will get to do just that, while traversing the Loen via ferrata all the way to the summit of Mount Hoven (1.011m).

The Loen via ferrata can be challenging at points. The hike as well as the via ferrata itself is arduous. As a result, participants on this trip should be in good physical condition and have prior experience in a similar environment.

There are a number of great highlights that you will get to experience on this trip on the Loen via ferrata. One of those highlights is the incredible Gjølmunnebrua suspension bridge. The bridge, at 120 meters long, is the longest via ferrata bridge in all of Europe. And because it rises 160 meters above the canyon below, the views, while dizzying, are astounding. Another highlight is the hike itself, which is full of great views of the natural landscape and will take about 1.5 hours. It will also take you to an altitude of approximately 440 meters. And finally, you will get to enjoy a beautifully scenic ride on the Loen Skylift. This comfortable ride will take you back down from the summit of Mount Hoven.

This particular via ferrata is definitely for the more experienced, adventure inclined person. But the challenge it provides is certainly offset by the magical rewards it gives. So if you want to enjoy a difficult outdoor trek that will give you a number of memorable views, just send us a request.

We can also guide you on another Norwegian via ferrata trip near Bergen.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
