The Flåm Railway
This is considered to be one of the world's most attractive and exciting railway journeys. See some of the wildest and most striking examples of Norwegian mountain landscapes with the Flåm Railway. The journey between Flåm, beside the Aurlandfjord, and the mountain station at Myrdal, is an experience all year round.
Visit Flåm Railway Museum & Documentation Centre
After a trip with the railway you can enter the Flåm Railway Museum & Documentation Centre. The centre is situated next to the railway station in Flåm, and entrance is free of charge.
In secure and rigid inflatable boats (RIBs) you have the best opportunity to experience and explore the nature and wildlife at close range. You can explore the Aurlandsfjord and the UNESCO protected Nærøyfjord, both branches of the Sognefjord.
The area represents extreme, dramatic and beautiful fjord scenery. There will be frequently stops to view the wildlife and the old settlements in the high mountain sides. The guide will inform you about the landscape and local wildlife, and may also tell old stories and tales from the area.
Watch the film "Living with the fjord"
Flåm Panorama shows the film "Living with the fjord" - daily - all year, every half an hour from 11 am to 7 pm. The cinema has a capacity of 75 people.
Kayaking is a very popular activity to experience the wild nature, the scenery and the silence. Guided trips every day throughout summer, no experience needed.
Hiking and biking
In the dramatic nature of Flåm you can go on various hiking trips in the nearby mountains. If you want to hike in the area, but are unsure where to go, Flåm Guide Service provides local and experienced guides for various tours. Several tours on foot, but also by bike, for instance on the historic Rallarvegen (the Old Navvies' Road).
Travel back in time at Otternes Bygdetun
Otternes Bygdetun, with 27 different buildings dating back to the 1600's, is a place not to be missed. This is a local cultural treasure and today a "living museum", with a fabulous view towards Flåm and the quiet Aurlandsfjord.
Taste the local food
In the centre of Flåm you will find many restaurants and cafés which offer a large selection of hot and cold dishes.
There are several producers of local and traditional food in the area. One of them is Haugen Gardsmat, which makes many delicious products. They welcome you to their farm home, and offer lunch and dinner from their own menu.
In nearby Undredal you can sample the famous local brown and white goat cheese. The goats live most of the time outside, and if they are not climbing in the steep mountains, you can see them along the roads. When you are in Undredal, the Undredal Stave Church from 1147 is worthwhile a visit. This is the smallest stave church in Norway, with seats for only forty people.
