Used the local sightseeing bus. Which is parked right adjacent to the cruise port. Much cheaper than the TUI alternative & runs every 20 minutes.. whole trip took just over the hour and was £22 pp.

A stunninly beautiful village, lovely for walking and also the location where P&O really made my blood boil. Bascially they lied and deliberately misled customers. The evening before they announced over the PA they had a new excursion going up the reatively new Loen cable car, making the claim it would be cheaper than purchasing the trip locally - that was incorrect. Going with P&O actually worked out over 60% more expensive than purchasing locally. The chair lift organisers offer a free continuous shuttle bus from and to the ship and the cost of the cable car, although still expensive, is cheaper. Additionally the P&O tour group were all crammed into a single godola, with a limited time at the top, whereas we were able to bide our time and go in a near empty gondola and savour the views, as well as having as long as we wanted at the top. The sail away from Olden was wonderful, with the town playing farewell music over loud speakers and locals waving us off. Read Less

A stunning port of call. Beautiful scenery. Due to the weather we decided to walk up to the glacier as the cable car was covered in cloud. We booked this in the office next door to where the ship had docked. We shared a private taxi with 4 others and taken to the start of the walk and told what time he would be back to collect us. The walk took around 1 hour or so (I stopped to take lots of pictures) and about 45 minutes to come back down. You didn’t need to be that fit to walk it as it wasn’t steep all the way up in fact some of it was flat for a bit. You can however take a troll car up/down most of the way. The glacier was stunning! Lots of waterfalls on the way up too. Read Less

Olden was great going to the Birksdal glacier, with the ride most of the way up (Troll car). The last bit we had to walk was hard, but we'll worth it.

Did the trip to the glacier independently by using the local bus which stops right by the boat. From there you have a choice of a 45 minute walk or motorised transport (at a cost) to get close to the lip. We chose the latter and were rewarded by a splendid walk. We did bear in mind however that the whole experience would have been far less enjoyable had the weather not been favourable. Read Less

Not knowing much about this place I booked a ship's tour to Briksdal glacier, selecting the option of taking troll cars (like a 6 seater golf buggy) to the glacier rather than the 90 min hike. This time the weather was gorgeous and the coach took us past stunning mountain scenery in an amazing light. the morning reflections on the lake as we set off were just fantastic. We had a photo stop by a lake and small waterfall before heading off to Briksdal. The scenery for the whole journey was breathtaking. At Briksdal we had a short time to spend a penny, take some photos and then join the queue for the troll cars. These took us up the mountain for about 20 minutes, including a drive right past a large waterfall with its spray. You WILL get wet here! Then on leaving the car we had to walk about 10-15mins up to the glacier. It was very steep intially but only for a few minutes, then more comfortable. You cannot go right up the glacier itself but certainly close enough to get a true feeling of awe at the scale of it. This was our holiday wow moment right here - absolutely amazing. My only criticism would be that we could only stay there about 10-15 mins as we had to get back for the troll car to meet the coach at a particular time, though the time did also include free drink and cakes! This was well organised as we were taken to a separate area to help ourselves to some lovely cakes, no limit on numbers we tried it seemed! If I was to visit again I would probably try to organise private transport so we could spend longer at the glacier but the journey was still one of the best trips I've done anywhere. Back at the ship and we dropped our bags and came out to explore round the little town, walking out to see both new and old churches. We spent more time walking (now in a lot of heat and bright sun!) than we did in either church but it nice to see them. The old church which is closer is well worth a visit for the interior, with pews with doors on that still have family engravings Read Less

We booked an excursion through P&O. It was truly outstanding — the best on the cruise. Our extremely experienced guide was just excellent. We were bused to and from a lake called Lovatnet, with several stops on both the outbound and return journeys, including views of the Kjenndalen Glacier. Boat ride from one end of the lake to the other was just fantastic — what views! At the end of the boat ride we were treated to delicious waffles with yogurt and jam, at picnic tables with views of the glacier and high waterfall. Read Less

We did our own thing in the morning and enjoyed our walk and visited the lovely little wooden church. We had an early lunch in the Horizon restaurant before meeting our guide at the pier for our excursion. We were taken by coach to view a glacier which we walked to the base for a lovely photo point. We then our coach and were taken to the Sky Lift at Loen- Fjord to Sky in 5 mins. The experience was fantastic! The views from the top were just stunning also the facilities were excellent. Read Less
