WELCOME TO
OLDEN – NORDFJORD CRUISE PORT
- Gateway to the glaciers -
We wish you a warm welcome to the Nordfjord. Olden
– Nordfjord Cruise Port consists of the following ports:
Måløy, Selje, Nordfjordeid, Sandane and Olden.
This folder present information we hope will be useful
when calling in at Olden, or one of our other ports.
Olden is a small pleasant village at the end of the
Nordfjord. A ten minute walk from the quay will bring
you to the centre of Olden where you can enjoy shops,
cafés, the bank and a post-office.
The Nordfjord ends in three branches; Olden is located in
the south. The beautiful Olden Valley stretches approx.
20 km in between 1.700 metres tall mountains at the
edge of Jostedalsbreen Glacier in the middle of
Jostedalsbreen National Park. The glacier arms embrace
the upper part of the valley, and waterfalls and rivers
bring the water to Oldevatn Lake and Floen. About 2 km
from Olden the river forms an impressive waterfall.
The rich moraine soil provides fertile conditions and
agriculture is the main trade of the valley. Other
industries are commerce, production and tourism. Olden
has a population of 1500. It is a part of the municipality
Stryn in the county of Sogn & Fjordane.

Olden og omland
Av dei tre korte fjordarmane inst i Nordfjord endar den sørlegaste i Olden. Her i frå
strekkjer den vakre Oldedalen seg omlag 20 km mellom fjell, som reiser seg 1700 m ved
kanten av Jostedalsbreen. Bre-armane ligg som ein krans rundt den øvre delen av dalen
og Middagsnibba (1440 m), og her renn elva som flyt ut i Olde-vatnet og Floen. Elva
dannar eit praktfullt fossefall 2 km frå tettstaden.
Olden har to kyrkjer. Den som står i sjølve tettstaden, vart bygd i 1759. Der stod ei
stavkyrkje frå 1300-talet. Dørstolpane og dørene til kyrkjebenkane er laga av tømmer
frå stavkyrkja. Den nye kyrkja, reist i 1934 med tanke på å ta vare på den gamle, ligg litt
lenger oppe i bygda.
Aust for denne gamle kyrkja er “Singerheimen”, der William Singer, amerikansk
millionær, kunstnar og velgjerar i lokalsamfunnet, budde i si tid. Mange av målarstykka
hans har motiv frå Olden og omland, og avspeglar på ein fin måte årstider og stemningar.
Den frodige morenejorda gjev svært gode vokstervilkår, og gardsdrift er
hovudnæringsvegen i heile dalen. Oppe i liene ligg mange setrar.

Olden and Oldedalen / Olden Valley
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. The turbulent river which feeds the Olden and Floen Lakes and forms
magnificent falls two kilometres from the village, comes from the glacier tongues of
the Jostdalsbre, lining the head of the valley around the pointed Middagsnibba (1440).
Olden has two churches. The one in the village was built in 1759 on the site of a stave
church dating from around 1300. Its pew doors and jambs are made from timbers of the
stave church. The “new” church, a short distance along the valley, was built in 1934 so
that the old church could be preserved.
Just east of the old church is “Singerheimen”, former home of William Singer, an
American millionaire, artist and local benefactor. Many of his paintings are of the Olden
district and delicately reflect the atmosphere and the seasonal mood.
The fertile soil supports many fine old farms in the lower and upper valleys and high
above the farms are several tiny summer pastures.

Olden und Umgebung
Der südlichste der drei, kurzen Seitenarme am Inneren Nord-fjord endet in Olden. Von
dort aus erstreckt sich das schöne Oldetal etwa 20 km weit in Richtung Süden zwischen
steilen Berghängen, die über 1700 m hoch bis zum Rand des Jostedalsbre aufragen. Die
Gletscherzungen umkranzen den obersten Teil des Tales und den Berg Middagsnibba
(1440 M), und hier fliesst der Fluss der im Oldensee und Floen endet. Der Fluss bildet
einen pracht-vollen Wasserfall 2 Kilometer vom Zentrum.
Olden besitzt zwei Kirchen. Die eine die im Ort liegt, wurde 1759 an der Stelle einer alten
Stabkirche etwa im Jahre 1300 errichtet. Die Türen und Pfosten des Kirchenstuhls
wurden aus dem Holz der Stabkirche her-gestellt. Die “neue” Kirche, ein kleines Stück
weiter talauf-wärts, wurde 1934 hier gebaut, damit die alte Kirche erhalten bleiben
konnte.

Olden et ses environs
Le plus méridional des trois bras du Nordfjord aboutit à Olden. Ici la magnifique vallée de
Oldedalen s’ètire à 20 km entre les hautes pentes à une altitude de 1700 m qui se trouvent à
la bordure du glacier de Jostedal.
Les langues du glacier forment une couronne autour de la partie haute de la vallée et du
sommet de Middagsnibba d’une altitude de 1440 m.
Ici la rivière se jette dans le lac de Olden et Floen. Cette rivière forme une cascade superbe à
2 km de la petite agglomération. Olden posséde deux églises. L’une se trouve bien au centreville, construite en 1759 sur le site de l’ancienne église en bois debout qui datait d’environ
1300. Le portail et ses pilliers sont des vestiges de cette ancienne église. La nouvelle église,
construite en 1934 fut placée un peu plus loin pour pouvoir sauvgarder l’ancienne construction.
Östlich der alten Kirche liegt “Dalheim”, der frühere Wohn-sitz des amerikanischen Millionärs und Künstlers William Singer, lokalen Gemälde zeigen die Gegend von Olden und
geben die Stimmungen zu ver-schiedenen Jahreszeiten sehr gut wieder. Die fruchtbaren
Moränenböden bilden eine gute Grundlage für viele, schöne, alte Bauernhöfe im unteren
und oberen Teil des Tales, und hoch oben an den Berghängen liegen mehrere, kleine
Almen (Seter).
À l’est de l’ancienne église se trouve la maison de Singer, où habitait dans le temps le millionaire
américain William Singer, bienfaiteur genéreux du village. Une bonne partie de ses toiles
represent les paysages d’Olden et de ses environs et qui illustrent bien les changement des
saisons.
Une bonne terre de moraine permet des conditions favorable pour la végétation et les revenus
principaux de la vallée sont basées sur l’agriculture. Des alpages peuvent être aprecus au flan
de la montaine.

GUIDED HIKE TO FARM SIGDESTAD
- cultural experience in spectacular nature
Sigdestad is a mountain farm located 314
metres above sea level at Hjelle. The path to
Sigdestad is fairly steep, and before 1723 they
had to use a stepladder to reach the farm. All
goods which had to be transported to and from
the farm, had to be carried on one`s back, up
and down the steep path. The houses that are
there today were built in 1908, and people
lived at this road-less farm until 1960. The farm
has a fascinating history, and is today
maintained by “Segestad’s friends”. This
foundation was established in 1983.
