The beautiful, untamed nature and the valley´s dramatic history make a visit to Lodalen an experience not to be missed.
The Lovatn lake is green because it contain clay particles and rock dust, carved out by glaciers and swept along by rivers. The glaciers are continuously crushing up rocks and stones. When the glacial water reaches the lakes and fjords, it looks green, especially when the sun shines.
Lodalen is also home to the most easily accessible glacier arm: Kjenndalsbreen, only 160 metres above sea level.
