Introduction to Olden, Nordfjord, Norway

The charming village of Olden is set amongst green meadows – ablaze with colourful flowers throughout the summer – and babbling brooks meandering between pretty houses. It’s the gateway to the famous Briksdal glacier arm, which is set between tumbling waterfalls and high peaks.

At its eastern end, the magnificent Nordfjord divides into three arms beneath the glaciers of the Jostedalsbreen, and Olden sits at the beginning of the southernmost of these arms. Olden is utterly delightful, a charming village set in green meadows which are ablaze with colourful flowers throughout the summer, and through which babbling brooks meander between pretty houses.

In the centre of the village is the Old Church, built in 1759 on the site of a 14th century stave church: the timber was used for the pew doors and doorposts. Near the church is the Singerheimen, the former home of William Singer the millionaire founder of the sewing-machine company. He was a gifted amateur artist, and some of his paintings of the Olden area can be seen in his workshop.

The beautiful Oldedalen Valley extends for 12 miles behind Olden and is an absolute joy to explore. Flanked by huge, near-vertical cliffs and sparkling glaciers, the views the valley offers are a sight to behold. On a adventure through the valley you will also spot a string of spectacular waterfalls. Olden is also perfectly placed for tours to the astonishing Briksdal Glacier.

Activity Tour Boat Tour
Price£90.00 - £100.00
DurationApproximately 4 hours
LimitationLimited spaces – pre booking essential

This tour adds a different element to the Briksdal Glacier tour – a boat safari on the glacier lake to really get up close and appreciate this natural wonder.
 
Upon arrival at Briksdal Inn, you will start your walk to the glacier lake, which should take approximately 45 minutes to one hour. The track crosses the river and ascends above a waterfall to the top, where you will have a fantastic view of the Briksdal Glacier – an arm of the mighty Jostedal Glacier. The first part is rather steep but becomes flatter until a small leg at the end, which is more difficult.
 
Reaching the glacier lake, you will see the Briksdal Glacier across the water. This is where your boat safari starts. Your safari guide will give instructions and hand out equipment and you will then be ready to enjoy approximately 40 minutes in a rubber raft to marvel at the glacier, and capture some great photos.
 
After enjoying the scenery from the lake, you will stroll back down the valley.
