Looking over the Landscape the first thing you are attracted to is what appears to be an old red church nestled in the valley on the road leading out of town.

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!

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.
