Why Visit Flam & Ride the Flam Railway

Flam is a very small village nestled in a gorgeous fjord surrounded by the beauty of nature. It is located in the heart of Western Norway and is easily accessible by car, bus, boat or train.

Among the most popular activities in Flam is taking leisurely walks and hiking to enjoy the scenery or renting quad bikes to visit the nearby waterfalls. Exploring the Aurlandsfjord and Naeroyfjord fjords nearby is also a must while in Flam, as both provide breathtaking landscapes as well. Naeroyfjord is actually a UNESCO World Heritage Site!

What is more, visitors staying in this town treat themselves to the so-called Viking Plank, a tasting of traditional beer and snacks, available in the local Aegir Brew Pub. Make sure to also sample some local delicacies, such as cured meat, goat cheese, and juices or ciders made from locally grown fruit and berries.

Nevertheless, most of all we recommend you go on the Flam railway ride! Starting from the mountain station at Myrdal in Norway, this scenic train takes you down to Flam via the longest and deepest fjord in Europe, the Sognefjorden. It's a breathtaking experience!

The Flamsbana railway is said to be one of the world's most scenic railway journeys with the views of mighty waterfalls, mountain peaks, cliffs, and valleys. The train travels slowly and stops at the most scenic spots, so you can take a lot of photos. Don't miss out on this exquisite and sensational experience!

If you're keen on getting to know more about the scenic route and its construction, don't miss the chance to visit the Flam Railway Museum, located at the Flam railway station.
