Olden, Norway

A glittering fjord and a vast sea. Towering mountains. Blue glaciers between green valleys. Norway's Nordfjord region is all this and more. And the sleepy little village of Olden is the key that unlocks the door to these natural wonders. The Nordfjord spreads into three long branches and its southern-most branch terminates at Olden. From there, nature runs its course to the beautiful Oldedalen Valley, the stunning Jostedal Glacier and the glittering lakes, Olden and Floen.
