About Olden Active

Olden Active is the new identity for our experience offerings. Mølla Guesthouse in Olden is also part of our concept. Both parts are subject to the company Briksdal Adventure AS, which is owned by father and son Briksdal.
We are a total supplier of experiences in the inner Nordfjord. With more than 25 years of experience in the business, and historically far more than a lifetime in the industry, you can be assured of being taken care of to the best of your ability. Our goal has in all these years been, and will continue to be, to facilitate that you / you experience the inner Nordfjord in an unforgettable way. We are locally based, contribute to local value creation and have sustainable development for everything we do.
Anchored in everything we offer are professional, locally value-creating and welcoming hosts. Our guides, instructors and skippers are of course trained and certified according to industry standards to take care of you to the best of your ability. For example, all our kayak guides are at least at the Technical Course level according to The Norwegian Paddle Federation's certification levels.

Kayaking with a professional instructor on Nordfjorden, Oldevatnet and Lovatnet
RIB trip with a certified captain on the Nordfjord
Glacier hike on Tystigbreen (on Strynefjellet)
Bicycle and kayak rental

Our history

For more than 150 years, the Briksdal family has received travelers from far and wide. Ever since the first visitors discovered the mountains, fjords and glaciers, we have facilitated memorable, professional and unique experiences in the heart of Nordfjord. With personal, professional hosting, we welcome you and do our utmost to ensure that you enjoy unforgettable days in exciting, lush and emerald green surroundings.

From glacier guiding to diverse providers of experiences

Until 2006, glacier guiding on the Briksdalsbreen glacier was the main business of our business. Our general manager and youngest brother in the Briksdal family, Frode Briksdal, bought together with his eldest son, Ruben Briksdal, the venerable Mølla Guesthouse in Olden in 2013. Here we are located today. We are thus no longer to be found daily in Briksdal, but in Olden (more specifically Fjordvegen 1567, 6788 Olden). In the heart of Oldedalen, Per Briksdal and his family, still runs Briksdalsbre Fjellstove. Inside, close to the famous Briksdalsbreen glacier, with views of mountains and glaciers, you will find a restaurant, coffee bar, souvenir shop and accommodation.

Here we are

We are now located along Fylkesvei 60 just north of Olden center. Specifically in the venerable Mølla Guesthouse at Olden quay. Here you can join safe kayak trips on the fjord, fast-paced adventures with RIB boats, exploratory bike rides and enjoy local flavors in our restaurant and bar.
In addition, we have several other bases in the area, where we offer different activities: Oldevatn Camping in the Olden valley (kayaking), PlusCamp Sande Camping in the Loen valley (kayaking) and Stryn Sommerskisenter along Gamle Strynefjellsvegen on Strynefjellet (glacier walk).

Team Olden Active

We are professional guides, instructors, captains and other hosts who have relevant education, as well as updated knowledge and skills in accordance with current standards. All have either national or international education / certification. This means that you can be sure that safety and quality are taken care of.
For decades, we have been both a springboard and an employer for skilled, reputable guides, instructors, captains and hosts. The combination of locals and adventurous people from other places in the country and abroad, gives the totality experience-based, interdisciplinary and versatile. We facilitate personal and professional development, at the same time as we require reputable, constantly updated certifications and attitudes in the team.
Common to us all is the passion we have for the area and the desire to share it with you. We look forward to getting to know you, and look forward to what we will experience together!
