Stryn - Loen Stryn.
This tour takes you from Fagre Stryn (“magnificent Stryn”) to the beautiful village of Loen and the Lodalen valley. The beautiful and mighty nature almost makes you speechless.
We recomment taking the early bus, as you will need some time to see and do everything Loen has to offer.
When you arrive in Loen, you will see Loen Skylift on your right. Loen Skylift is a spectacular attraction and adventure arena. One of the steepest gondolas in the world, it takes you from the fjord to 1011 meters above sea level. It takes 5 minutes to the top and it is a wonderful experience for people of all ages.
If you are ready for a bigger challenge, you can choose to climb the Via Ferrata up to the mountain. This is a climbing route that takes about 5 hours, depending on how fit are. At the top, you can enjoy a good meal and a majestic view.
Back in Loen, you can rent bicycles at Loen Activev. Wind up your trip in Loen with a lovely bike ride to the Lodalen valley. The bike ride to Lodalen between the high mountains and the ice blue water is something that simply must be experienced. Maybe you can even be tempted to go swimming in the cold glacier water? If you don’t want to go for a swin, it is possible to rent canoes and kayaks at most of the camping sites.
In Loen you also find the mountain Skåla. The hike to the top is spectacular, with views of fjords, mountains and glaciers. Nowhere else in Norway will you find a bigger difference in altitude from fjord to summit. Walking here on the old stone-paved paths and stone steps, with fantastic fjord landscapes as far as the eye can see, is a true cultural experience. This trip is suitable for normally fit people. You can expect to use approx. 8 hours from the fjord to the mountain and back.
When you are back in Stryn, full of new experiences and impressions, sit down at a café and enjoy a good meal while you look at your new pictures and the bustling life in the streets.

This is a “Travel like the locals” tour. The tours use public transport, i.e. regular buses, ferries and boats, but we have done the planning for you so that you can concentrate on enjoying your trip. You travel on your own - there is no guide or tour leader. On most of our tours you must change several times between different buses/ferries/boats, and it is up to you to make sure you catch your connections – truly travelling like a local! (The tours are set up so that the buses, ferries and boats connect.)
