Loen Skylift is one of the steepest cable cars in the world and offers a breathtaking and unforgettable view of the Norwegian fjord landscape.
After five airy minutes, you arrive at the Mountain Station and Hoven Restaurant, where you can enjoy 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.
Each cabin has room for 35 passengers. Loen Skylift runs continuously during operating hours without fixed departure times.
