About Olden, Norway

Situated along the innermost arm of the Nordfjord, this picturesque village of western Norway is surrounded by some of Scandinavia's most captivating scenery. Here lies the largest glacier in all of Europe, the Jostedal, towering nearly 6,200 feet over a deep valley. The green fields, serene lakes, and cascading falls of this region are simply breathtaking.

Stunning views are your reward from an amazing viewing station - across the surrounding landscape including the Nordfjord, and the glacier field. 4. Easy new paths enable you to walk on further up.... 5. Excellent mountain top restaurant - yes it is expensive - for two good reasons - a.
