We'll be in Olden for a day in September (coming on a cruise ship) and would like to take a simple typical hike (we often hike at home and would like to see Norway's nature on foot.) Is there an easy way to get somewhere scenic for a walk / hike from the cruise ship dock? We would like to see the glacier but if possible avoid the crowds that will be on the ship's excursions.
We will also be in Oslo, Stavanger, and Kristiansand, likewise interested in seeing typical Norwegian life, not tour bus excursions. Ordinary grocery stores and other aspects of daily Norwegian life and outdoor activities like walking in nature appeal to us. Any suggestions or advice?
Any advice about what weather to expect in mid-September?
