With fewer than 500 inhabitants, olden is an ideal destination for people who enjoy spending time in the great outdoors, and its the gateway to Jostedal, the largest glacier on the European mainland. If you can, find a bottle of Olden Mineral Water, as close as you will get to a glacier on tap.
Day 7: Alesund, Norway
At the entrance to the spectacular Geirangerfjord, Alesund has been voted the most beautiful town in Norway, and not only because of its location. The town burned to the ground in 1904 and was rebuilt in Art Nouveau style, with a few added elements from Nordic mythology-a longboat here, and image of Thor there.
Day 8 Lerwick, Shetland Islands
The Shetland Islands may only have one town, and it's small, but as you already know, good things come in small packages.

Day 10: Torshavn, Faroe Islands
