  • I was so excited to ride the Flam Railway to see all of the lovely scenery. We were so disappointed! About 40% of the railway between Flam and Myrdal is inside tunnels. There are pretty things to look at, but often it's a mountain face that is 10 feet away. There were some pretty waterfalls along the way, including one stop, but waterfalls are not rare in Norway. The train was nice and comfortable. I would not recommend this unless you are unable to hike in order to see the sights.
  • Fantastic scenery and lots of surprises on the way. Waterfalls were unbelievable and the stories re-enacted. Well worth a visit
  • The historic train that passes up through the mountains is without a doubt the best thing to do in town. The train is wonderfully restored and feels just like it must have when it was the only way to get into town. From town, it passes up through the mountains, along rivers and even through a tunnel through the mountain, finally arriving at the top. It even stops at the waterfall for pictures along the way. Make sure to get a window seat for the best views, though you’ll only get good pictures through the open windows in the reserved seats. The journey up and back takes about an hour each way and you can even stay on. Don’t miss it in Flam. Book ahead to make sure you can get on.
  • Really beautiful experience. It is is indeed one of the most beautiful train journey you can ever have! It passes through breath taking gorges with the valleys around. It makes a stop at a waterfall ideal for taking the perfect selfie. I visited it during winter and it was beautiful with snow around. We stopped for a few hours at Vatnahalsen where we had a nice meal at the restaurant and explored the surrounding area.
  • Good fun. Really enjoyed the trip up and down (especially if you like your trains and photography). However, it gets VERY busy with tourists as the day goes or or when there's a cruise ship in....I'd advise going early or late accordingly if you can. Also make sure you get there with plenty of time to spare...we booked tickets and nearly missed our train owing to a road tunnel being closed!
