Loved Flåm but if we had caught the railway down as well as up, we would have missed so much breathtaking scenery! Booked the railway up online prior to our holiday for 8.35am. We wanted to cycle down as we had read fantastic reviews of oap's cycling it (so I had no excuse!!!) For some reason we were unable to book the cycles online so we decided to risk it and make a beeline for the cycle hire as soon as we got off the train. Very helpful guy and it cost £35 each to hire the cycles but oh so glad we did it! Apart from the very beginning of the walk that is steep and recommended by the cycle guy that you walk it, it was the easiest and most enjoyable bike ride we've ever done! Best part of the holiday and we would have been slightly disappointed with the Flåmbana if we had got it back down the mountain. (Not very much to see or do at the top... just a coffee shop so maybe allow half an hour for refreshments if you are using the railway back down)

We LOVED Flam (or Flom as its pronounced!). We didn't see much of it as we went on the 'Norway in a Nutshell' excursion. This was excellent mix of private & public railway, lunch and a return trip by coach with a commentary by a lady who really knew her stuff: very interesting & enjoyable. Lots of amazing scenery.

it is a lovely quiet little place with an amazing train that is 100% accessible even with a large powered wheelchair.

Do the train you can book it yourself at the station loads of spare seats & so much cheaper than Thomson! It's about £43 return each ticket easy to do & very pretty.
