    I didn't know this petit Train existed in Flam until we happened to come across it away from the majority of the shops and attractions.By this time we had walked the main part of Flam that we wished to see. Usually we use these Trains because of walking problems, but here in Flam, the distance isn't great to cover.If you wish to use the Train, then...

  • Seagulls

    Gudvangen Things to Do

    On the ferry trip along the Nærøyfjord seagulls will join the ride. It seems that they expect peole to feed them, so they fly partly in the same speed as the boat and by this offer great chances to take beautiful photos. So have your tele lense with you, but take care not ot drop it in the fjord when changing lenses!

  • Touristic Ferry through Nærøyfjord

    Gudvangen Transportation

    A very easy way to experience and explore the UNESCO World Heritage Nærøyfjord is to take a ferry from Kaupanger to Gudvangen. You will have to do nothing as relax and admire this beautiful part of Norway. The ride is about 45 kilometers and offers spectacular views of the landscape. The ride is operated by the ferry company fjord1.More information...

  • Speed boats

    Balestrand Transportation

    The best way to travel to Balestrand is by a speed boat. The operator called "Norled" runs express boats from Bergen to Sogndal (and back) daily throughout the year. On their way from Bergen, the boats call at several villages along the fjord, including Leikanger, Balestrand and Vik. From 1 May to 30 September express boats also run daily from Flåm...

    Balestrand Things to Do

    Climbing up the hills surrounding Balestrand is pretty hard work, but once you get up there, the views are fantastic! Unfortunately, there are just pathetic small signs at the bottom of the path that lead up to the hills and there is absolutely zero info at the village's tourist office and they have no maps or guides to help you get there.

    Myrdal Things to Do

    As part of my round trip to Flam (from Hemsedal) I got off the inter city train (Oslo-Bergen) at Myrdal, a mountain station and 866m above sea level, where I caught the train and descend down to the Flam Railway to alight at Flam, gateways to the fjords. I only had 10 minutes connection time (arrived at 1245 and got the 1255 train) so I didn't have...

  • Kjosfossen Waterfall

    Myrdal Things to Do

    Descending to Flåm, in summertime the train stops at Kjosfossen Waterfall. It is a wonderful oportunity to admire this beautiful waterfall and to have a souvenir from this wonderful place. There is no access to this station except from the train itself. I have uploaded a video of this natural marvel.

    Myrdal Favorites

    Selje Transportation

    From Bergen there are express boats to Selje twice daily (only once on weekends - in the afternoon). The boat leaves from Strandkaiterminalen in the harbor of Bergen (close to the Fishmarket) and the trip takes 5 hours.In February 2008 a one-way ticket costs 720 NOK (about $135). A round-trip ticket is valid for 3 weeks (not on Fridays FROM Bergen...

  • Getting there from Oslo

    Selje Transportation

    If you are going to Selje from Oslo and don't have a car of your own, you can take a bus. There are express buses leaving Oslo three times daily called NORDFJORDEKSPRESSEN. The trip takes 9,5-10,5 hours, including a 30-45 minute stop at Kvam in the Gudbrandsdal valley where you can have a meal if you want to. You take the bus to Maurstad (second to...

  • Stave church and cheese

    Undredal Things to Do

    Undredal is a small village beautifully situated on the Aurlandsfjord. It is well known for two things. Firstly, there is the stave church, thought to date originally from the middle of the 12th century but whose present appearance is largely due to 17th century decorations and fittings followed by a major 1722 restoration. Secondly, there is...

  • That's Undredal too!

    Undredal Favorites

    Another encounter with Undredal on the ferry going to Flam was a pleasant surprise - I had not thought we would be passing it or see it so clearly, like a Christmas card picture with the church in the middle. The clouds, so low on that day, shrouded the place in mystery, making the picture even more charming.

  • Walk around to see the great scenery

    Undredal Things to Do

    There aren't many things to do at Undredal but the scenery is so stunning taking a walk across the bridge and up the narrow mountain road to see the fjord or going down to the fjord are well worth the effort. Perhaps by the time you come back the guide will arrive and take you around the old church?

    Nordfjordeid Restaurants

    We were quite surprised to learn that there is in fact a Chinese restaurant in Nordfjordeid. Our friends who live near Maloy on the Atlantic coast told us that people sometimes drive the entire stretch along the Nordfjord - 50 kilometers to get there and 50 kilometers back home again - just to enjoy a Chinese meal in this restaurant. I do not know...

    Måløya Things to Do

    This is where the open sea cuts into the land, and the Nordfjord starts here. During the Viking Era, there was apparently a settlement here. There's also an island out there somewhere called "Moldøen" where Viking King Magnus the Good signed a treaty with some local farmers in the year 1035. For that reason, Moldøen has been compared to Runnymede...

  • The town's only grocery

    Leirvik Shopping

    There is a small ICA supermarket in town, located in the small mall of Leirvik Senter. While it does have the normal supplies of a small grocery store, I would recommend only getting the essentials until you can get to a larger town. The prices are slightly inflated. Buy what you need, wait until you are in a larger town for the rest.

They will stay open if they know you will be dining later. Otherwise they close...

  • Ferry Smørhavn - Kjelkenes

    Kalvåg Transportation
