The village of Olden finds a home on the innermost arm of the lovely Nordfjord. It’s surrounded by dramatic mountains, making it one of the most charming villages in west Norway. Its main attraction, however, is the beautiful Briksdalen Glacier, one of the most visited glaciers in Norway. Starting from the village centre, see the old church and make your way along the shores of Floen Lake to the long and narrow Olden Lake. This route brings you to Rustoen, where colourful farms pepper the fertile upper valley. On both sides you’ll be able to see thundering waterfalls coming from the ice field. Then you’ll clap eyes on the long white tongue of the Melkevoll Glacier. The road carries on to the Briksdal Inn, where you’ll start your 45-minute walk to the incredible Briksdalen Glacier, cloaked in shades of blue and turquoise. Afterwards, return to the Inn to relax before making the return trip to Olden.
