 Nordfjorden

Skåla mountain is 1,848 metres and located about 7 kilometres east of Loen and about 7 kilometres south of the Oppstrynsvatn lake. The latter one is sometimes called Stryneskåla. Every year there is a race from Loen up the mountain.

Skålatårnet tower or Kloumantårnet tower at the top of the 1.848 metres summit is built from rocks. The construction of the tower was initiated by Dr. Hans Henrik Gerhard Klouman from Innvik. It was built as a means to cure tuberculosis, which was widespread in the late 19th century. The walls in the tower are 50 centimetres wide, and there are two floors. Today, the tower is accessible to the public, with 22 beds.
