Flåm

Famous for it's railway and incredible scenery by the Fjord.

Flåm is a village at the inner end of the Aurlandsfjord, an arm of the Sognefjord. The Norway in a Nutshell tour visits Flåm.

The village is located in the municipality of Aurland in Sogn og Fjordane county, Norway. Check out the Flåm website for information about this region.

Surrounded by steep mountainsides, roaring waterfalls and deep valleys, this area is a paradise for everyone looking for a one-of-a-kind experience with nature. Modern transportation makes today's Flåm a junction that is easily accessible whether you are travelling by car, boat, train or by bus. Large cruise ships in the harbour are a daily site throughout the spring and summer months, and it is only a short walk from Flåm Port and the many fjord boats to a trip on the Flåm Railway - or maybe a visit to the Fretheim Hotel.

The village of Flåm is a popular tourist destination and has been so since the late 19th century. It currently receives almost 450,000 visitors a year. Most come to enjoy the scenic 20-kilometre Flåm railway (Norwegian: Flåmsbana) between Flåm and Myrdal, one of the steepest railway tracks in the world. There are also a few spirals. A former rail station building in Flåm now houses a museum dedicated to the Flåm railway.

The harbour of Flåm receives some 131 cruise ships per year, making it very busy indeed. At 50 Degrees North, we plan your stay around not being in Flåm on a day of a large cruise ship visit.
