The ship had sold out but we were able to buy tickets at the station for a much cheaper price. The waterfall was by far the best surprise of this tour. It’s a must do if your visiting this port.

Took the train up & down the mountain. Great views & picture taking opportunties. The ship seems to dock right in town & the train station is about 100 yards away. Great meal & beer at the local microbrewery.

We did the ship's tour on the railway - sit on the right hand side of the railway as it leaves Flam (facing into the mountain), but when you switch over to the second train for the onward journey, switch over to sitting on the left. That way you get the best views on each leg. If you don't do that, then you end up with a few hours of effectively blank mountainside. It was very scenic though. Flam itself is tiny, so don't expect to find much to do in the actual port.

One of our best days. Flaam is tiny, less than 100 inhabitants and can accommodate only one cruise ship at a time. Spectacular beauty of Norway fjords area in full display here. Definitely need to book a ship excursion here or something on your own because there is nothing to do in Flaam. On our own we booked the "Norway in a Nutshell" trip which is recommended by tour guide Rick Steves. Pricey (over $300 for the two of us) but worth it with 2 hour boat cruise two fjords, bus trip on Norway steepest road, train trip on the Bergen to Oslo railroad and finally another train back Flaam. The last train to Flaam is the steepest railroad in the world and an engineering marvel. Trip takes six hours and scenery is...fjord, waterfalls, rivers, meadows...is spectacular. This was my wife's favorite day.

Not a real town and not much to do around the port. We took a privately-booked excursion to Gudvangen (much nicer village) by boat - at one-third the price charged by HAL for the same experience!

We did not do an excursion here though many others did and enjoyed the railway trip. There is not a lot to the town to visit though the beauty of the area is incredible.

Lovely place to visit. Railway trip was amazing. Best to buy tickets independently on the day as far more cheaper & availability there if bought early.
