Would you like to experience one of the world's most spectacular train journeys?
The Flåm Railway is part of the famous Norway in a Nutshell roundtrip between Oslo and Bergen.
In Western Norway, at the innermost banks of the Aurlandsfjord, you'll find the small village of Flåm.
When arriving at the station, disembark and spend some time discovering everything Flåm has to offer!
Start by visiting the fantastic Stegastein viewpoint, 650 meters above the Aurlandsfjord. The viewpoint is part of the National Scenic Route that runs from Aurland to Lærdal.
Or join a relaxing fjord cruise, for example onboard the award-winning, electric catamaran Legacy of The Fjords in Nærøyfjord. A journey through this fjord is so unique that it's on UNESCO'S World Heritage List.
There are a lot of great trekking options in Flåm. Embark on a hike in "Norway's Grand Canyon" Aurlandsdalen ...
Or get stunning views and plenty of air under your feet from The longest zipline in the Nordic countries, with its 1381 meters!
350 meters above the ground, fly along at 100 kilometers per hour through beautiful, pristine nature.
Or explore Flåm on wheels! It's a great way to discover hidden gems in the countryside.
Norway's most popular cycle route, Rallarvegen — The Navvy Road, ends in Flåm, and is a journey through both majestic nature and fascinating cultural history.
Aurland is a cozy village focused on slow travel, with an organic bakery and several cool craft businesses.
Take home a pair of Aurlandssko! This traditional penny loafer has been made locally since the 1930s.
The gates are also open at the Viking village Njardarheimr in Gudvangen.
Here, stroll around among the living Viking guides and hear stories from the lives of the Vikings.
Another place full of Viking history is the Ægir BryggeriPub, a very popular local brewery pub. Here, you'll get a culinary experience which is as much inspired by the 1020s as the 2020s, and world-class beer!
Make sure to visit the idyllic village of Undredal, known for its award-winning goat cheese.
Flåm is not just a summer destination. The fjords are as remarkable in winter time!
Did you know that Flåmsbana railway also becomes a "ski lift" at this time of year? Put on your skis and rush down from the mountains to the fjord, or join a snowshoe trip!
These are only a few examples of what you can experience!
