 From Flam rail station

Flåm is a small, beautiful village situated at the end of the Aurlandsfjord in Western Norway. The village can be accessed by the famous Flam Line Railway, one of the most scenic in Europe that extends from Myrdal to the Flåm Railway Station. The trip lasts about an hour with stops to take photos of the scenery and powerful waterfalls. The village can also be accessed by cruise ship.

Getting around Flåm is easy -- the village is entirely walkable. The railway station is set directly in the center of town and is within comfortable walking distance of your Flåm hostel. All manner of accommodations are available from budget hotels to expensive lodges.

The town is great for travelers who want to explore the nature of Norway. The tourism department, located adjacent to the railway station, provides great maps of the town along with hiking trail routes and descriptions. The hiking trails take you up through the northern part of town and some take you to Flåm's historic attractions, such as the wooden church (about three kilometers from town). For the more experienced, hiker trails do connect from Myrdal to Flåm and from Flåm to other towns in the Aurland municipality. Be sure to do lots of research about the route, where to stay, what to bring, and what to wear. This area of Norway can be cold, even in the summer, so don't underestimate the elements.

Visitors can also explore the fjord in several different ways. Canoeing and kayaking are popular ways to enjoy the water. Companies also offer high-speed rafting trips out to the end of the fjord. Any way you choose to see the Aurlandsfjord, make sure to bring a camera, as it is truly one of the most beautiful places on earth.
