The only night birds here are owls...
In a nutshell
The trip there and the trip leaving are all part of the experience.
Arriving early for our Train trip, we found many queues. It was very disorganized. Eventually some people were let on the Train, we headed there with others and were stopped. More were let through in different areas. After lots had boarded the train, eventually one of the conducters pointed us to where we first went to get on, and this time when we showed our ticket, we were let onto the Train.
The result was, the Train was fairly full by then, AND SEATS ARE NOT RESERVED, so it was a battle to find one where we could sit together.
Not the best start to the trip, thankgoodness it got better as we went!

Many people take the the Flåmsbana up and then either walk or ride a bike town the 20km paths. However, you do not need to go all that way to see some of the best scenery and get your exercise in.
For example, if you start near the Flåm church (about 5 minutes drive up the valley from the port), you can walk up the road as far as you want and get many varied views of the shall town, the valley, the cliffs, waterfalls, etc.
There is a small reservoir about 30 minutes walk past the church which can give good photo opportunities, but due to the water vortexes, swimming is not allowed.
Equipment: Bring water and if you tend to wander off the road, maybe insect repellant
