On the 20th of May 2017 one of the greatest and most spectacular tourism projects in Norway opened. Her Majesty The Queen undertook the official opening. The cable car will convey tourists from the fjord to the top of Mt Hoven (1 011 m) in just five minutes. From the Fjord Station you start the ascent with the Cable Car to Mt. Hoven (1011 m). After 5-7 airy minutes you arrive at the Mountain Station, and Hoven Restaurant where you will have a 210 degree panoramic view overlooking Mt. Skåla and Lake Lovatnet in the east, Jostedalsbreen Glacier and Olden in the south, and the Nordfjord that winds its way towards Stryn in the west. From Hoven you can explore the mountain on your own in a comprehensive network of trails, or with a guide. On foot in the summer, or skiing or snowshoeing in winter. The possibilities are many – the choice is yours.

Take the Loen Skylift to the top of the Mt. Hoven, and go hiking high above the fjord. Marked and built trails give motivation to explore the highlands. Or maybe you want to challenge yourself a bit by climbing the Via Ferrata Loen?
