Escorted Rail Tours to Flåm

At a tributary of the world's longest and deepest fjord

The beautiful small town of Flåm is nestled deep in a tributary of the world's longest and deepest fjord, the 204-kilometre-long and 1308-metre-deep Sognefjord. Surrounded by steep mountainsides, roaring waterfalls and deep valleys, this area is a truly spectacular natural wonder, whether the sun is shining or rain is pouring from the sky.

The name "Flåm" means "little place between steep mountains," and at the end of the 1800s many cruise ships with English and German travellers found their way here to experience Norwegian fjords, mountains and waterfalls. The ships' passengers laid the foundation for hotel operations and a steady stream of tourists, who were transported in two-wheeled buggies through the spectacular scenery. After the Bergen Railway was opened in 1909, Flåm became a crossroad for passengers, mail and freight to and from the trains between Oslo and Bergen, in connection with the steamships on the fjord.

Welcome to the land of the midnight sun – where it really never does get dark in mid-summer. If you wait up late enough you can watch the sun graze the horizon, a blazing ball of orange, before it immediately starts to rise again.
