Lake Floen, Norway

We followed a path from the bridge over the Oldeelva river up to a road that curled round Lake Floen. We could perhaps have walked all the way round but I wasn’t sure there would be a bridge or connection to the other side so we turned back after reaching the lakeside. (Looking up maps later it turned out there was a connection and there is in fact a further lake (Oldevatnet) beyond that, apparently fed by the Briksdal glacier.)

Before we reached Lake Floen on our walk up from Olden we came to a bridge over the River Oldeelva just where it spills over a falls. The river is quite fast moving here. Worth a video or two I thought:-

Olden, Norway

Olden is a small anchorage at the end of the Nordfjord, Norway. The town is no more than a village and sits at the mouth of the Oldeelva river on the southern shore of the Nordfjord.

The houses there are typically Norwegian, built of wood and traditionally constructed:-

Except some of them have turfed roofs:-

This building looks a bit small to be a house but note the mountainous backdrop:-
