Is this a hike or a climb?
The via ferrata in Loen is a combination of hiking, scrambling and easy climbing. The first section is hiking uphill, and you gain a lot of elevation here. Then you start using your gear for both scrabling and via ferrata climbing using the steel wire and some steps. This is a great experience for anybody who is reasonably fit and do not have a problem with hights. If you have no muscles in your arms you will probably struggle a bit, but it should be doable if you are ok with step scrambling already.
The via ferrata in Loen is close to famous hikes in Norway like Skåla, Eggenipa and Kattanakken. I have written reports about the last two previously.
Feel free to check out my video from when I did the via ferrata in Loen:

Warning Please note that hillwalking when there is snow lying requires an ice-axe, crampons and the knowledge, experience and skill to use them correctly. Summer routes may not be viable or appropriate in winter. See winter information on our skills and safety pages for more information.
