4. The Flåm Mountain Railway (Flåmsbana)

Flåmsbana is one of the world’s most spectacular rail journeys and one of the biggest attractions in Norway.

The train runs between the Myrdal high mountain station on the Bergen Line down to Flåm Station in the innermost Aurlandsfjord, winding its way through 20 tunnels and past sheer rock faces and foaming waterfalls.

5. Winter hiking tour with snowshoes

Fancy doing something different than skiing? Join us for a hiking tour with snowshoes from Flåm to Stegastein.

Hiking with snowshoes is a great way of getting close to nature in the winter, and this tour offers incredible views over Aurlandsfjorden. You don’t need any experience with snowshoes, the guide will teach you all you need to know as you go along.
