Cruise Destination Olden/Loen Nordfjord

Gateway to the glaciers

Nordfjord is situated between the biggest glacier in mainland Europe and Norway’s wildest stretch of coast at Stad. This 150-km-long area from west to east, from ocean to glacier, offers lots of great and readily accessible scenic, cultural and culinary experiences. Olden is a small pleasant village at the end of the Nordfjord. A ten minutes walk from the quay will bring you to the centre of Olden, with shops, outlet stores, cafés, ATM and a post-office. We wish you a warm welcome to the Nordfjord. Olden /Loen – Nordfjord Cruise Port consists of the following ports: Måløy, Selje, Nordfjordeid, Sandane and Olden.
