Flåmdalen, one of the most popular tourist resorts in the country, is a narrow valley stretching from the Hardangervidda in the south, to the Aurlandsdalen Valley, a branch of the Sognefjorden, in the north. Flåm is an excellent starting point for excursions by car or boat to other well known resorts in the Sognefjorden. Cycling along the navies’ road, hiking in the valley, trout fishing in the river, a train journey on the Flåmbana railway and various boat trips are just some of the activities that are available to visitors in Flåm.

The Flåmbanen Railway: a masterpiece set in wild and wonderful scenery. A train ride on the Flåmbana will provide you with the experience of a stretch of railway that is quite without precedence in Europe: 20 km long and involving a climb of 865 meters. In order to manage such a great degree of elevation on such a short stretch, the railway has been placed in spiral tunnels that go in and out of the mountains.
