Voyage to a Small Town with Big Surroundings

You will find the beautiful small town of Flam nestled deep in a tributary of the world's longest and deepest fjord.

Surrounded by steep mountainsides, roaring waterfalls and deep valleys, you'll experience a one-of-a-kind experience with nature.

Its almost 65-year-old Flam Railway is widely known as one of the world's most fantastic stretches of railroad.

This daring hairpin traverse of Mt. Stalheim is one of Europe’s steepest roads. The small village of Gudvangen lies at the base. The route features stunning views of both the valley and the Stalheimfoss waterfall, which cascades 413 feet down the mountainside.



Located just 39 miles from Flåm, this small town is a hub for extreme sports, hosting an Extreme Sports Week every June. For those seeking milder thrills, the town also contains a church with seven foot thick walls and an octagonal wooden tower that dates back to the 12th century.

The Flam Railway

The Flam Railway is only 12.5-miles long, but its exhilarating route traverses the narrow valley, crossing back and forth across rivers and through 20 tunnels climbing from sea level to more than 2,800 feet. A stop will be made at the overwhelming Kjosfossen Waterfall, continuing on to Vatnahalsen, to enjoy homemade Norwegian waffles.
