Loen Skylift

  • Sightseeing and Guided Tours

Take the Loen Skylift - from fjord to the sky in 5 minutes! This spectacular new cable car takes you from the fjord to the top of Mt. Hoven in a matter of minutes.

With its dramatic and spectacular scenery, Loen has been a magnet for tourists for more than a century. Now visitors can see this amazing fjord landscape from above!

At the top of Mt. Hoven, 1011 meters above sea level, you can enjoy great panoramic views of the fjord landscape, the mountains and the Jostedalsbreen National Park.

At Mt. Hoven you can relax in the Hoven Restaurant, which serves a la carte and a light bar menu. Or you can explore the mountains on one of the several marked hiking trails. The hiking trails are varied and several of the trails are suitable for all experience- and condition levels.
