Loen is right in the core of the Nordfjord, and surrounded by some of the Western Fjord's great natural beauty spots. There's so much to explore in and around the Loen region, including he nearby Lodal and Briksdal Valleys with their farms and forested slopes that mirror into the lakes. The impressive Jostedal Glacier is one to tick off your list here, being the largest glacier in mainland Europe. Brisksdal Glacier and Kjenndal Glacier are also worth a visit, along with a boat ride down the narrow Geirangerfjord with its many waterfalls. There's great walking terrain, either along the valley or into the mountains via the Skylift cable car, plus of course the chance to relax at some of the best spa facilities in the fjords at the Hotel Alexandra.
Our Glaciers & Coast twin centre holiday will let you experience both Loen and Ålesund, as they are so easily linked. Or, if you wanted to add another destination to your holiday pick Fjord Explorer which will include Balestrand, along with both Loen and Ålesund.
There's also the popular Highlights of the Fjord escorted tour.
