Flam Railway and Hiking the Flam Valley
Starting from $219 USD / Adult
Experience one of the most majestic landscapes in Norway on an excursion that combines a leisurely train ride with a pretty strenuous hike. Your first leg takes place on the legendary Flam Railroad. Relax and take in the scenery as you crisscross through tunnels, over bridges and up steep slopes to reach the Vatnahalsen Station, more than 2,500 feet above sea level. Along the way, you’ll pass the Rjoande Waterfall and wind along the Flam River, fabled for its salmon fishing. Make a photo stop at the roaring Kjosfossen Waterfall before arriving at the Vatnahalsen Mountain Lodge. Fuel up with fresh Norwegian waffles and coffee before following your guide on a downhill hike that provides an intimate look at rugged Norway. Cross the Flam River by way of rustic wooden bridges, and trek through a narrow tunnel before meeting up with train for some well-earned relaxation on the ride home.
- Climb aboard the Flam Railway for a scenic ride that winds you through tunnels and along steep cliffs.
- Stop at the Vatnahalsen Station for a snack at its historic hotel.
- Hike a 7-mile downhill stretch that crosses the Flam River several times before meeting back up with the train.
