Brekkefossen, Flam

4.7
#2 of 7 in Parks in Aurland Municipality
Marvel at the long drop of Brekkefossen, a waterfall pouring from a hanging valley through a twisting gully. Though it can be viewed in full from the Flam railway, up close you can only take in about 115 m (377 ft) of the gorgeous waterfall's full 545.5 m (1,790 ft)--this perhaps accounts for its being generally overlooked. Wear sturdy shoes on the steep trek to the viewing point at the falls' base, where you will also be rewarded by beautiful sights of Flam, a nearby village. Take a walking stick if you need a little extra help to climb the trail.

  • It was a steep and very muddy hike but it was worth it for the views across flam and of the waterfall.  more »
  • Walk along the mountain slope near flåm and flåm and postcards at a glance views as beautiful as you can see the scene

  • Flåm is a city not to be missed to meet on a trip to Norway. A real treasure wedged inside of this great country!

  • Absolutely stunning views to be had from the top. The path is a bit steep at times and tends to be muddy, but should be doable to most people. Best to wear your hiking shoes though.
  • Great views from the top and well worth it - but go prepared for a hike up a slippery/muddy/rocky path. I saw people in sandals and others slipping in converse. Madness.
  • Worth the walk, expect it to be difficult in the wet. Option to climb further, but no tracks wouldn't recommend unless your a hiker/bush walker. No tourist up top 👍
  • Requires a certain level of fitness and please have good shoes. There is mud.
  • it take 20 minutes to famous location where most photographed place. also, you can follow up higher trail course but it more sloping-harder(about 20min), only end to just small waterfall.
