Olden, Norway Luxury Cruises

The tiny port of Olden in Norway might not be the busiest tourist location in the country, with fewer than 500 permanent residents calling it home, but it boasts one of the most scenic sailing routes in Scandinavia. Cruise ships travel to the heart of Norway en route to Olden, along the Nordfjord - one of the longest fjords in the region. Surrounded by mountains on all sides, and offering beautiful views from your ship throughout year, this beautiful coastal village is a fantastic and inspiring cruise destination.

Sightseeing in Olden

Olden is a quiet village, with quaint houses built along the edge of the fjord and on the sides of the mountain flanks. There’s no industry here and the nearest town is some distance away, giving it a very peaceful and tranquil air. Despite its small size, there is plenty to see and do, and most of the attractions revolve around the beautiful natural landscape of the Norwegian fjords. When your ship comes to dock in the port of Olden, why not try these popular activities for a great outing on shore?

Fishing in the Fjord

While you might not think stepping foot onto a boat is the ideal excursion when you’re taking the day out from your cruise, think again, because fishing trips on the Nordfjord are the ideal way to experience the peace and tranquillity of this ancient, glacial crevice. There’s an abundance of marine life here to catch, and local charters can be arranged from the port before arrival.

Mountain Trekking

The towering mountains that line both sides of the fjord offer the perfect escape from the sea. They’re great for trekking, either by foot or with mountain bike hire, and offer impressive views across the country and the mountain ranges that fill the horizon.

Briksdals Glacier

This popular shore excursion takes you by bus to a remote glacier that falls between two mountains not far from Olden. It’s one of the easiest places to see the end of a glacier up close, and gives a real sense of the impact that these ice giants have on the landscape.

Shopping in Olden

Olden doesn’t have a large shopping mall, as its size means it doesn’t need one. It has however capitalised on tourist interest by ensuring there are still plenty of shopping outlets for visitors to enjoy. From the quay where the cruise ships dock, it’s just a ten minute walk to the centre of town where a local market is the first stop for travellers looking for vacation souvenirs and trinkets. Kari Trestakk is a popular souvenir shop dedicated entirely to serving cruise passengers, selling authentic local crafts and artwork as well as handmade souvenirs..

Eating out in Olden

Although there isn’t the wide variety of restaurants in Olden compared to larger ports, it does boast several authentic eateries with traditional menus, offering the chance to discover and sample local Norwegian dishes. Fish and seafood dishes are often a speciality here and feature heavily on Scandinavian menus. Head to the Olden Fjordhotel along the coast, as it serves an authentic Norwegian Smorgasbord buffet dinner, with fresh meats, local produce and plenty of fruits de mer.
