Olden is the Southern-most city in north Norway, on the Western side of the country. It is part of three short branches in the Nordfjord. If you wish for a lovely valley combined with outstanding cliffs then Olden is the place to visit. You will see imposing slopes rising to more than 1700 metres. In Olden, as well as the beautiful lakes, you will see the fast-flowing river which provides the city with its water. Olden is flanked by glaciers at the tongue of Jostdalsbre.
Olden is not to be missed, whether you arrive by cruise ship or by plane. Travellers should remember that Norway is a cooler climate and therefore tourists need to be prepared for the varying weather conditions. The coastal part of the city has mild winters and cooler summers. You can also expect that further into the city will be colder in the winter and warmer in the summers. Something not to be missed is the polar nights. For those who have never seen the northern lights you are missing a spectacular show of nature. These lights can be filmed and photographed with a proper camera adding to the special trip you take to Olden. The weather can be rainy and snowy during parts of the year with temperatures ranging from a few degrees below freezing to around 15ºC.
