Get out of town with these interesting Flam side-trips: Kjelfossen Waterfall (in Gudvangen), Vindhellavegen (in Borgund) and Gamle Laerdalsoeyri (in Laerdalsoyri). And it doesn't end there: take in panoramic vistas at Stegastein Lookout, pause for some serene contemplation at Bakka Church, stroll through Flam Hiking AS, and admire the sheer force of Brekkefossen.
