Walkies in Olden, Norway πŸ‡³πŸ‡΄

I love a cruise to Norway, it’s a perfect short escape for a week of fresh air and beautiful scenery to rejuvenate and restore.

One of my favourite things to do in Olden is go for a walk! This merges two loves, cruising and walking! The fresh air feels fantastic whatever time of year. Oh and it *always* helps to move to burn off some of those excess cruise calories…

Upon leaving the ship, I turn to the right and walk into the main town of Olden, then after the local high school I turn left and head up the road towards the beautiful Olden Church. I then continue up the road pausing regularly to take numerous photographs. If you do not enjoy walking, or have difficulties then there is a road train, that picks up where your ship docks and drives the same route as my walk.

I then walk around Floen , the lake and after walking around it, turn right and follow the edge of the lake back around to where I joined the route. I will add some photographs for you to see the photographs of the Walk.

From memory the walk is about 11km in length, a small shallow hill up to the lake, then pretty much flat around the lake and a nice slow down hill on the way back down. On the way back you can always stop in Olden Village for a drink.

Please do share with me any walks you enjoy in Norway!

  1. Hi Lois,
    We’ve booked a cruise to Norway and one of the stops is Olden. Love the look of the walk to Floen lake.Is it along a road all the way and if so is very busy with traffic. I know your write up was a while ago but any info gratefully received

    1. I’m so sorry I’ve just seen this. Yes the road is narrower on the far side of the lake, but still proper road and easy to walk. Enjoy!
