People may only remember Briskdalbreen where you can do glacier walk there, but ones cannot forget Olden the front gate of Briskdalbreen. Olden is really like heaven in earth, the stunning view along the way to Briskdalbreen, the Old Church, the fjord, glacier lakes as well as the glacier river. We should stay here 2 nights and get tracking from... More

Olden is a quiet little place with just a few coffee shops some small retail outlets some lovely views and a must view church. Just go inside have a look at this super little church you don't have to be religious just enjoy and smile at the picture of the church elders!!!

Not joining one of the pricey excursions, we had a leisurely wander about, enjoyed the sun and had a coffee and took in different views of the fjord and where our ship was berthed. There's not a lot to Olden but like most of the fjords would look more spectacular with a covering of snow!

Lovely area and town of Olden. Beautiful scenery around here and not far from Briskdal Glacier. Olden situated on the Fjords. Lovely and picturesque area

Very small but beautiful little place. Even though it was raining it didn't take away from the stunning scenery. It was so clean and so peaceful. We just wandered around drinking in the beauty.

Driving around the area we were amazed at the beautiful scenery of waterfalls, hills and greenery of the landscape. The area is totally unspoilt by development and provides the visitor with the beauty of nature in serene surroundings.

Our ship docked here, what a beautiful place. Very few shops that we could see, an old wooden Lutheran church and pure clear water in the fjord. Stunning reflections and mountain scenery.

We called here as part of our cruise and it was our favourite place. We walked in the direction of the Briksdale glacier, past the church to the first lake on the right. We sat beside the lake and happen to strike up a conversation with a local farmer who directed us to a fantastic hike up the mountain. After... More
