We did the Fia Ferrata with Loen active, It was great! The evening before I suddenly doubt whether it is not too difficult (since we never climbed before) and started to read reviews. Well: You can do this! First you walk a path up to...More

My niece and I climbed the Mt. Hoven via ferrata with Loen Active in July 2018. It was our first via ferrata (actually, our first real climb) and we're hooked. I think back upon that day often and wistfully. It was epic. It was astonishingly...More

My cousin and I did this in early September. It was an awesome experience. We were the only non-Norwegian speakers that day but one of the guides made sure to interpret the directions for us and answered all our questions. We went on a Saturday...More

This was a great hike/climb, a bit more physically demanding than the usual hike. However, there are plenty of breaks during the hike so one can relax and recharge. The average level of difficulty of the via Ferrata is a C, in an Austrian scale...More
