Challenge yourself and your friends in Norway’s longest and toughest Via Ferrata. The Ferrata is graded to D very difficult) with overhanging lots and few steps. For those of you who are not experienced climbers, it is highly recommended to go with a guide, because with a guide and thanks to steel cables and iron steps most people can venture up the steep Straumsfjellet.
At the top, 550 meters above the creek, one can enjoy the view of beautiful Setesdalen!
A gap hawk has also been set up for those who wish to spend the night. The path down is easy to follow, but it is steep and runs somewhat in rough terrain.
Via Ferrataen in Løfjallet / Brokke is new for this year. It became ready in the fall of 2016. This one has the grading B (light / medium). On this route the steps sit closer and are adapted to younger climbers. The climb itself is 500 meters long and is really great family adventure.
At the top you can take a dip.
The descent is a marked hiking trail, and the whole trip is estimated to take about 4 hours, there and back.
Straumsfjellet: We strongly recommend to go with a guide. These are experienced climbers who help and guide you safely up the climbing path, from start to finish. We have tours every day, meeting at. 8:30 am and 2 p.m. 09.30.
