Enjoy the 20 kilometer long train journey through the village with spectacular views of the waterfalls and snow crowned mountains. The Flam railway is a remarkable journey in which one can get a glimpse of Norway’s wildlife, rivers, mountain farms and exquisite scenery. It is recommended to take this journey twice in a lifetime one during summer and the other during winter. The view undergoes a drastic change during both the seasons and accounts for an exceptionally different experience. The entire rail route has 20 tunnels of which 18 were hand built.

Great ride through the mountains and fjords from Flam. Well worth the journey. Breathtaking sights along the way. There is information on board the flamsbana about the history of the journey and attractions / sights to see on the way. Back it up with a Fjord tour as well. Norway in a nutshell is well worth it
Sit on the right while going towards Myrdal. The on board announcements tell you about the views and the waterfalls, so that you can get ready with your camera and you know where to look. Take a seat with openable window (there are eight of them in each compartment), if you want to click photographs. Also, would highly recommend taking the connecting train from Myrdal to Oslo (take it during at least 2 hours of daylight) - great views of glaciers on that one.
Excellent sight seeing trip. Be sure to alight half way up/down to see the spectacular Falls there. If you are a photographer the commentary is very good alerting you to the major photo opportunities. The train itself is clean and comfortable. Enjoy...
We stopped at Flam during our discovery trip. The place has very nice interesting and enjoyable activities. It also has nice cafes, restaurants, tourist services center, souvenirs shops, museum and hotels. Its one of the MUST visit places during your stay in Norway. On top of that, the people there are so friendly, welcoming and so informative.
Lets be honest - yes it's expensive. However, you'll probably only do it once, and the views are outstanding! If you are visiting as part of a cruise, it's easy to book this independently rather than as a shore excursion - we found it cost around half the price when booking it ourselves, which is a saving of about £200 when there's 6 of you! The children received a small colouring book and some pencils on the way up too, which was a nice touch. I'm glad we did it - treat yourself and make the trip!
