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
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.
We stopped at Flam as one of the points of call on our cruise. We didn't do the railway as it was pretty expensive and instead booked a boat trip to the viking village from the booking office in Flam. Be warned that when the cruise ships are in, the tourist office becomes very busy though. The journey to the viking village through the fjords was breathtaking and the staff on the boat were friendly and efficient. The viking village was great, with a fellow scot as one of the viking guides. He was passionate and knowledgeable about the vikings and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. There's a cafe, hotel and gift shops at the village and the scenery is worth a visit alone.
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...
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!
Beautiful and breathtaking!! There is a great little coffee shop up a hillside in a red little barn. Good food choices on the dock. Would have loved to have spent more time here.
