“Magnificant vistas, beautiful mountains, , wonderful people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

We stopped here on a cruise. The village is quaint. We took a half day tour to the Kjenndalen Glacier, Lovatnet Lake, and stopped to look st charming wood cabins for the framers when their cattle are in the mountains. We had delicious waffles at Kjenndalstova.
The trip from the port to Kjenndalen Glacier was beautiful. We mad multiple stops along the way to take photos. The glacier itself is not very impressive from the viewpoint in the valley. We then took a cruise on Lovatnet Lake which was gorgeous. The scenery with changing light created by clouds and the sun was just beautiful. Finally, we ended up back at port where the Lysefjord became a mirror of the surrounding mountains, sky, and farmhouses dotting the landscape. I have never been to a more breathtaking port!

“beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

I stopped here for a day on a cruise. It is a lovely village with two pretty churches. We got a half day trip to the Kjenndalen Glacier and Lovatnet Lake which has incredible scenery and I would recommend this if you are visiting the area.

“Scenic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

I was in Olden for a day during a cruise and it was a beautiful location. I just walked around the area and there were great views of the mountains, fjord, farms, and fields of lupines. Olden is near a lake and glacier so if you want tour them, this is a convenient location.
