Flam Railway Mountain Station

Flam Railway Mountain Station

Flåm is a small village in South Western Norway, located spectacularly at the end of Aurlandsfjord, itself a side-arm of the world famous Sognefjord. Flåm is a popular overnight stop on many sightseeing trips through Norway's fjords, as travelers often transition there between railroad or dramatic mountain road driving, and fjord cruises.

Flåm's location can only be described as unique: Nested among dramatic mountains, it lies at bottom of the picturesque, bright green Flåmsdalen valley. Visitors can travel up the valley on the Flåmsbana railroad, the steepest railroad in the world not assisted by a third rail cogwheel. The train makes a few stops on the way, including at a majestic waterfall. At the mountain station, connections can be made to the Bergen Railroad, considered among the 20 most beautiful railroads in the world.

Fjord cruises originate in Flåm, offering a scenic voyage on the world's longest fjord, Sognefjord, which stretches over 100 kilometers. Modern expressboats cover the trip to Bergen in less than six hours. Enjoy the scenery on the way!
