Hike in Mt. Hoven
Save

Since I really want to join the Via Ferrata Loen to have a spectacular experience, we can't make it as we have two kids at 11 & 11 years old. As an alternative, we plan to walk the wonderful hiking trails in Mt. Hoven and want to have views of a spectacular and dramatic landscape. Any suggestion.

There is also a tractor road to Hoven, built to bring supplies to the gondola construction work

As with two kids, we prefer the easy one. I can't access the map of hiking trails in Mt. Hoven and Skredfjellet from web. Can you advise if the trails already complete with signage or road marks

Hi!

Our trails are found here: https://www.loenskylift.com/summer-autumn-1#walking-hiking. The trails are marked with numbers, and the same numbers are found on the map that can be enlarged. All the trails on this map are waymarked, with difficulty levels etc. There is also an information board at the start of the trails when you arrive Mt. Hoven.

Other hikes can be done with guide. More trails will be waymarked in the years to come.

We hope to see you on Mt. Hoven!

Hi, can tourist use this tractor road to drive a car to the top of Mt. Hoven, or somewhere nearby? I saw from the website this road is closed at Opheim and only open to construction workers.

The road is probably closed with a barrier. Only pedestrians and those with a key to open the barrier.

The web site is pretty clear on this, so why question it? It says clearly that you can not drive to the top. The access road is not for tourists. You can drive as far as Opheim where there is parking (for a fee).

The Gondola is a bit expensive, but perhaps worth it? Loads of passengers, much more than expected. Supposedely one of the steepest Gondolas in use.
