Loen

Loen sits at the inner tip of the Nordfjord in the heart of the Western Fjord’s greatest natural beauty. There can be few more inspirational stretches of scenery than those in the nearby Lodal and Briksdal Valleys, whose farms and forested slopes are mirrored in a chain of glittering emerald lakes culminating in the ice-blue glacial tongues of the great Jøstedal Glacier. As well as trips to the Briksdal and Kjenndal glacier arms and the unmissable Geirangerfjord, there is also good walking terrain, either along the valley or into the mountains via the new Loen Skylift cable-car, plus of course the chance to relax at some of the best spa facilities in the fjords at the Hotel Alexandra

Why not try the Fjord ExplorerTaste of Norway, or Highlights of the Fjords multi-centre holidays? Or Capital to Coast on the Great Bergen Railway as it continues into its second year. Pick from one of our combinations with Coastal Cities and Glaciers & Coast to choose from.

A day trip to the famous Geiranger Fjord, a Troll Car ride at Briksdal Glacier or a guided glacier walk are other highlights.
