Port information

The Nordfjord (c) Terje Rakke/Nordic Life/Fjord Norway


Olden & Loen is two small villages located at the inner end of the fjord - Nordfjord. The head of the Fjord is characterized by varied and dramatic scenery. Peaceful valleys and tidy farms lie in contrast to gleaming glaciers, foaming waterfalls, and towering mountains. Olden is the gateway to the Jostedal Glacier, the largest glacier on the European mainland. A tour to Briksdal, its most well-known glacier arm, is higly recommended. The village of Olden and Loen are vigorous and active, with blooming trade and businesses. They have long been known for tourism and industry, but are now also famous for contemporary design.

OldenLoen is the main cruise destination in the Nordfjord region, but cruise vessels are most welcome in all the Nordfjord ports: Måløy, Selje, and Sandane; each hosting a range of interesting attractions and excursion possibilities. More than 30 different excursions to offer.
