Olden is located in the Strynn municipality of Norway. It is the southernmost of the three short branches at the inner end of Nordfjord terminates at Olden from which a lovely valley, Oldedalen, strikes due south for some 20 kilometres between slopes rising sharply to more than 1700 metres to the edge of the Jostedalsbre.
Olden is a base for a journey to the million years old Briksdal Glacier, which is the best-known of the Jostedal Glacier's many icy arms. The turbulent river, which feeds the beautiful Olden Lake, forms magnificent falls that you can see on your ride up to the stunning glacier.
