Olden, Stryn

(200+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site
Olden serves as a scenic village and the gateway to the largest glacier on the European mainland. Set among lush valleys dotted with wooden farmhouses and surrounded by towering mountains, the town lies within walking distance of the glacier, as well as coach tours of the area. Alternatively, board a high-speed boat and sightsee around the fjord. Visit the two small wooden churches--a red one built in the early 20th century and a white one dating back to the 16th century--for insight into the village's history. The center features a few cafes, some small retail shops, a bank, and a post office. Our Stryn trip itinerary planner makes visiting Olden and other Stryn attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • This was a long journey up the Fjiord, it is a deep valley with steep mountains all around. where the ship docked we were able to walk into the village which is a popular tourist town  more »
  • This is one of the most beautiful and a must stop place if you find yourself in Norway! As everywhere in Norway people are super nice, views of mountains and lakes and massive waterfalls and glaciers ...  more »
  • As we were heading up to the Briksdal Glacier (Briksdalbreen), in the Jostedalsbreen National Park, we went to this country (Olden). During the route on fv724 we met glimpses with beautiful views, one among many on Lake Floen very very cute. Consider that the area is very popular by mass tourism, because there is a berth for cruise ships (of all sizes), so you have to be lucky to find days with few people. In fact, the coming and going of coaches tend to spoil a bit of this magical place. We left having everyone in a hurry and we still enjoyed it thoroughly. So we had no timetable and/or ships to take. ... because?? We were in the camper.
