There is not a lot to see in Olden, unsurprisingly as it's a small community. Everyone who walks around visits the two community churches, this one being the original and not much used but valued for historical reasons. Certainly worth visiting and it was kind of the local community to keep the building open for visitors. Very simple inside and smelt and had the atmosphere of a large garden shed.

Olden church is a wooden structure on the edge of the town, a 15 min walk from where our cruise ship docked. It is a pretty building set in a stunning location and surrounded by a small graveyard. The inside was simple apart from the altarpiece. There is not a lot to see in Olden so most of our shipmates trooped in and out. Thoughtful of the local community to open their place of worship for visitors. Many thanks.

The prettiest church I've seen in a very long time, if go wooden then it is the nicest. The Olden setting is magical, the Norway I've dreamed of seeing.
