The Flam Railway - Review

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.

The Flam Railway, Flam Reviews

  • This is the most disappointing experience we had in Norway. The track from to flam is awfully boring. The most fun we had was all people getting of the train to see the waterfall.. and if it was not enough someone started singing and dancing on the rocks close to the fall. Norway is doing itself a disservice by advertising this.we are cruising the country for 2 weeks now and have seen way better things. Flam btw is nothing more then an ordinary tourist trap. I wonder if there are actually living people. We booked the nutshell package and have to be fair the boat trip was more then good so close to the mountains and enjoying the view. The bus ride back was part of the package but not stunning.. Thinking of booking this? Just think twice .. Norway has more to offer

  • The tram was like a lovely scenery train ride with a beautiful view of Stockholm's nature and beauty, especially those amazing waterfalls which were coming on our way. There were also huge rainbows near the waterfalls which made me feel like a dream world. The tourists were filled with excitement looking at the dancing girl in red near one huge waterfall with her beautiful dancing with background music. You will get to stop at the most lovely places where you can click amazing pictures of the scenery! Lovely experience!

  • Nice experience. The landscapes you can see are beautiful, not exstraordinary though. The expectations were high considering the huge advertisiments related. They haven't been totally satisfied. I expected more

  • One of the most amazing railway. Mountains and waterfalls, forests and rivers that your going to see on board a nice train with a vintage touch. However Folk show taking place in an amazing location give to the experience an useless touristic taste. To visit the Flambana Museum (free entrance), located close to the platforms offer an intresting view on the History of this important infrastructure.

  • Definitely not worth the money you pay for it. Some beautiful spots but not worth €60 per head
