A visit to picturesque Olden is all thrilling panoramas and hikes through wildflower sprinkled trails. The Briksdalsbreen arm of ice, reaches out from the main glacier, and sits around an hour's stroll from the village of Olden itself - regular busses can also take you there. Snaking through steep-sided valleys, you can enjoy a walk close to the foot of the ice, and feel the spray of the waterfalls that plummet nearby, as you breathe in some of the freshest air you’ve ever tasted. The crisp glacial meltwater is so clean and pure that it’s bottled up to be sold across Norway.
Olden itself is a small, relaxed location, and you can enjoy a short stroll to its pretty red wooden church, while you're soaking in the scenery. Lake Loen in another of the area's incredible natural assets, with emerald water offering a vision of perfect symmetry, as the snow speckled mountains reflect off its surface. There are always refreshing opportunities to try out your kayaking skills, and to cruise across glass-like lake and fjord waters, immersing yourself in the valley's beauty.
