Brekkefossen, Flam

(150+ reviews on the web)
Waterfall
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. For Brekkefossen and beyond, use our Flam holiday planner to get the most from your Flam vacation.

  • Great walk up from Flam with amazing views of the town and waterfall. Reasonably steep and pretty muddy if it's been raining so appropriate footwear is helpful. Well worth the climb.
  • Absolutely beautiful! Not an easy climb up, but totally worth it to see the waterfall up close and views over the whole town. Take lunch and have a picnic up there!
  • Great hiking destination. Saw rainbow at the top. Unforgettable.
  • Nice little hike. Quite steep with a lovely waterfall and view at the top.
  • It's very beautiful. really worthy of visiting.
