Magma Geopark


Via Ferrata Migaren was popular this summer

Via Ferrata Migaren is a 400 meter long climbing route that winds along the mountain wall and over a waterfall in Jøssingfjord. The trip goes is partly on bolts in the mountains and is named after the waterfall you have to cross along the way. The climb is easy in terms of difficulty, but will still provide a nice hiking experience and challenge for most people. You do not need climbing experience when on a guided tour, but you do need a viaferrata gear, a climbing harness and a climbing helmet. If you have much experience, you can climb on your own.

After a thorough round of maintenance work, the Via Ferrata Migaren has reopened in the spring of 2020. This summer, this tour was very popular and over 80 people have tried this activity.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Is Migaren difficult? Migaren is a relatively simple Via Ferrata, but like all other such trails it involves some climbing and maneuvering. For an experienced climber, Migaren is easy, but for a person who has never climbed before, it will probably be experienced as a challenge – including a lot of mastery after completion! It is also possible to turn around if you feel that it will be too much to continue.

I have a little fear of heights – can I climb Migaren? Migaren is a climbing trail. This means that you have to go up the mountain wall. For those who have a fear of heights, it may seem challenging, while for others it will lead to a feeling of mastery once the trail is complete despite the fear of heights. Most people can get afraid of going through the waterfall, but if you trust the gear and manage to breathe calmly, you can get through easily. Tip: sit in the harness / lean as heavily as possible in the harness at a point early in the course. Then you will trust the equipment when it comes to tougher parts.

Can we bring children in Migaren? The smallest climbing harnesses we rent from Magma’s office are from approx. 40 kg. We recommend that children are 12 years or older before climbing Migaren. This is due to gear, but also due to mastery of the course. It is of course possible to bring younger children, but remember that this is a climbing trip – not a hiking trail.
