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 travelers 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 Railroad 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.

Arctic Circle Express
Mr D Higgins
“This was an absolutely brilliant tour, which we thoroughly enjoyed, in spite of some early morning starts and late evening finishes! The Tour Manager was just great and a real fund of knowledge at every stage of the tour. She was well informed and was able to keep us very well advised along the way, as well as keeping the whole trip on schedule.

“Leisurely pace of all tours was good for older people didn’t feel rushed. Guides and Tour manager were excellent. We had a problem with smell in one of the hotels and tour manager sorted us another better room. The fiord cruise was a bit of a let down we were squeezed onto a small car ferry with lots of others and the weather not being good there was not enough shelter for everybody. Other than that it was a good vacation. (Switzerland was better as we like old trains)

The idea of traveling aboard a night train holds an almost mysterious allure, conjuring images of moustachioed Hercule Poirot aboard the Orient Express or stepping into the high heels of Jack Lemon and Tony Curtis as they bunk down with Marilyn Monroe in Some Like It Hot.
