so much to do in the Norwegian Fjords
Whether you want to speed around the Fjords on a rib, take a road train around the town, hire a talking car and visit nearby villages or go walking, there is so much to do in Flam and they make it so easy. However, the conventional train up the mountain has limited access and will almost certainly sell out before the day of your arrival, so book it through the ship. The train rises 2845 feet in just twelve miles and was finished in 1944, there is a great museum to it at the back of the local store. At this time our ‘Get Your Guide’ service has not connected with Norway, but when you see tours at this destination under ‘Get Your Guide’, they will have. Let’s start with the very informative video Jean did for Doris Visits that will show you what there is and where it is, and you will see the operators. The guide shows everything from museums to canoes, to walks to trains. You will like Flam! Flam is is a tiny village on the banks of the Aurlandsfjord, one of the branches of the beautiful Sognefjord – the longest and deepest fjord in Europe and it will take you by surprise!
