Olden is small place, with just few shops,but you don't come here for shopping. This is paradise on earth. Come here to recharge batterys for new working week. Perfect place to run with family.

Olden took our breath away and there is not a single photo that does this place justice. We took the local land train tour, which is well worth it. The contrasts in colour, so vivid, have to be seen to be believed.

Well worth a visit, we took the troll car to the glacier and didn't walk too far. if you walk from the bottom its 45 mins each way so quite a hike, bear in mind if you have any trouble walking.
