We visited Flam while travelling on a Norwegian Cruise with Fred Olsen. The ship was the Balmoral. Rather than go on an organised tour we simply purchased a ticket when we arrived. It's a two hour journey up and back. Some people choose to get off two stops early on the way back and walk to the bottom which would... More

A nice and relaxing train ride with beautiful scenery and would recommend the right hand side for better views going up. Pre booking is essential if a cruise ship is in.

One of the best train trip you can have. Beautiful landscape and sceneries. The train take you from Flam to Myrdal (about 20km) and takes about an hour.

This is worth the fee just for the views you get as you climb your way through the mountain. Plenty of opportunity to get out and take photos plus a nice little surprise awaits on your way back down again....

This is one of the most iconic train rides in the world. It is stunning mountain scenery. And to add to everyone's pleasure there are two dancing Trolls at one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the country. Enjoy the experience on the ride between Flam and Mydral. Hot waffles and chocolate round off a perfect day.

Loved this stretch of train line as we journeyed from Flam to Oslo - with the change at the top at Myrdal. Beaut views. A stop at the waterfall. Incredible engineering went I to building this track.

Loved this trip on Flam railway from Flam to Myrdal and back to Flam. The scenery is breathtaking. The cars offer a vintage look. Stopped at waterfall so everyone can get off to take pictures. Female troll appeared dancing to music. Since the snow was melting, there were waterfalls all along the trip.

The mountain train goes in a scenic mountain area. It is breathtaking, especially at the waterfall stop, where you have the possibility of "feeling the beauty and power" of a waterfall! Highly recommend to add Flam Railway to your itinery when visiting the fjords of Norway.

Fantastic Train Ride, took about 3 hours but it felt like 15 minutes. I would stay in Flam for the evening and take the Ferry home to Bergen.
