The village of Flåm lies in the heart of western Norway at the innermost part of Aurlandsfjord, a tributary of the Sognefjord. At almost 130 miles long, the Sognefjord is the longest and some say, the most beautiful of Norway’s fjords.
Flåm itself is surrounded by picturesque scenery of meadows, orchards and imposing mountains. Tourists come from all over the world to ride on the famous Flåm Railway, which runs up to Myrdal to connect with the main Oslo to Bergen line.
The railway is a masterpiece of engineering and offers one of the most dramatic train journeys in Europe passing dramatic cascading waterfalls, steep hillsides and snow-capped mountains. Over a distance of less than 13 miles, the train track climbs from sea level to approximately 2,850 feet, crossing back and forth across rivers and through 20 tunnels.
From this port you can enjoy a choice of several excursions which include a ride on the Flåm Railway as well as scenic drives through picturesque countryside. Flam is also home to Norway's newest microbrewery - the Ægir Brewery located directly on the pier, which offers visitors guided tours and of course the opportunity to sample the produce.
