Description

The summit of Mt. Skåla in Loen towers 1,848 metres above sea level. In 1891, a round tower that sleeps 22 was built on the summit. It has always been a popular mountain destination. Mt. Skåla is reckoned to be Norway's highest mountain with its "foot in the sea".

Magnificent and breathtaking view. It is possible to spend the night in the tower.

Skaala Uphill 1.848 m.a.s.l. - Northern Europe's toughest mountain race takes place every year in mid August. Skaala Uphill, from 29 to 1848 metres above sea level is North Europe's toughest mountain race in terms of the difference in altitude of 1.818 metres between start and finish - and not the least with regard to the total running distance which is only 8,2 km. The average rise is 22,5 per cent! The race starts at Tjugen, 29 metres above sea level. Skaala Uphill is arranged with both competition class with individual timekeeping, and also with a fun-run class without timekeeping.

Hotel Alexandra and Loen IL, is the organiser of Skaala Uphill.

Mt. Skåla

Scale the heights of Skåla If you want to get to the top in life, you have to be prepared for some uphill battles. To reach the top of Skåla (1848 m), you won’t find a longer uphill stretch in the whole of Norway. Skåla - this imposingly beautiful giant of a mountain - towers over the village of Loen. A good man-made track winds its way through the rocky terrain a whopping 1848 vertical metres from the shoreline of the fjord. Skålatårnet  - the tower at the summit - is not just the kind of DNT (Norwegian Trekking Association) self-service cabin where you spend the night or simply whip up a well-deserved warm cup of coffee on the summit. This was originally built as a sanatarium to cure illness, and the place hasn’t lost its remedial qualities, as there can scarcely be anything healthier than fjord views and a cool glacial breeze.
