Fjord Norway Vestland AURLAND

Hike or Bike the Flåm Valley

Overview
Details

Explore the Flåm Valley on foot or from the saddle! Combine the stunning Flåm Railway with an idyllic walk through the verdant Flåm Valley.

The path follows the last section of the popular Rallar Road, ending at Flåm on the Aurlandsfjord.

The Flåm Railway

Begin your trip by taking Norway's most popular train journey from Flåm to Myrdal, up vertiginous valley sides in the heart of the fjords. The train journey up to Myrdal and the walk or bike ride back down offer amazing views of the following majestic waterfalls: Kjosfossen, Kårdalsfossen, Rjoandefossen and Brekkefossen.

Myrdal

From Myrdal station, the last section of the Rallar Road descends through the Flåm Valley to Flåm. The road from Myrdal covers the last 20 kilometres of Norway's most spectacular cycle route. The Rallar Road is the old access road for navvies from when the Bergen Line was built. The upper section is an unpaved track, while the lower section is a tarmac road that carries local pedestrians and vehicular traffic. 

Myrdalsberget

A highpoint of the trip is Myrdalsberget, where the route snakes down through 21 hairpin bends, before following the valley floor and the Flåm river to your destination.

The "Rallarrosa" dairy at Kårdal is a traditional mountain farm that sells homemade goat cheese. This is a charming place to take a break and sample a genuine local specialty.

Halfway down the valley is the deep Berekvam gorge. The farms in the valley were active long before the railway and roads arrived and are still in use all year round. Flåm church, built in 1667, is in the "old" village centre of Flåm by Håreina.
