Lovatnet is a beautiful lake fed by glacial run off. It's quite cold for swimming but I managed to get in. The lake water gets brighter and prettier the further down the road you go. There are a few camp sites along the road, but...More

A really beautiful and atmospheric lake. At the quaint town of Stryn I asked the woman at the Tourist Information which was the best to visit, Lovatnet, or its twin lake Oldevatnet. She said, Lovatnet is a French film; Oldevatnet a Hollywood film. We visited...More

Stunning, there are really no words to describe this and other local Fjords. Steep cliffs. blue and green water, glaciers! Amazing. And the air is so fresh. Everyone should get to see these places at least once in their lives.

We loved our boat trip on Lovatnet Lake, it was beautiful. The water is an extraordinary shade of green. The lake is surrounded by mountains and waterfalls. It is quiet and the water is very still, so it's quite mesmerising drifting slowly across the lake....More

Sailed through the lake during a glacier viewing excursion from a cruise ship. Everything was top quality. Perfect weather, blue/green water, spectacular scenery, interesting history with tragic events involving landslides, tsunamis and fatalities, glaciers, waterfalls, woodland. Simply perfect – Norway at its very, very best.

We walked from the downtown Loen to the entrance of the lake (or a little more but did not reach Breng yet). It was 2~3 hours round trip without any difficult hiking. The view of the lake really surprised us, it just could not be...More
