We took a private taxi with about 8 other people. A lot cheaper to do it this way but booked from the train station ticket office. On a clear day you need to do this

We walked down to Flåm from Lunden, and these falls were on the left. You can’t really miss them. They're a lot of fun, but really just part of the passing scenery. Given that this area is beautiful in every direction, you really don't need someone telling you which direction to look in.

We were told the round trip from hotel Flamsbrygga will take 3 hours and were given a map to follow, but it didn't take as long. It took us about 1 hour to get to the top, well, the vantage point. We don't think it was the end of the trail but the rain made the rest of the hike... More

We used the local map of the area, this tour is no. 4 and describe as a moderate hike in the area, took us 2 hour not include the admire of the scenery. It was steep and a bit muddy at parts; if you have hiking sticks better take them. You have to pay attention to the sign because it... More

The hike to Brekkefossen took me almost 3 hours since I got lost hiking on my own. Perhaps, in the afternoon hike you could follow other hikers. The first hour or so was easy, the last half hour extremely rocky and steep. Then it got slushy and slippery around the woods - dangerous! The scenery at the top was amazing... More

...... but nothing special. You see this on your way up either on the train or hiking. Town itself is absolutely fabulous though. Very picturesque and quiet, a real gem of a place.

I love a challenge and this one got me. My vertigo set in. The area was wet and slippy with rainfall the previous day. I do plan on reaching the top if I go again in the future when it's not as wet.
