Flåm railway and Flåm

This morning we backtracked a little and took a train back along the same route we traveled last night, then at Myrdal transferred to the privately run Flåmsbana railway. The route from Myrdal to Flåm, a small village at the tip of the Aurlandsfjord, lives up to its reputation as one of the most scenic in Europe.

Flåm itself turns out to be a lovely little village nestled in a deep valley. A pretty river runs through the village on its way to the harbor. The village has bikes to rent, a good system of bike paths and walking trails, some cute cafes, a small railway museum, and a brew-pub. We got lucky and found a relatively inexpensive room in a comfortable rental apartment with a shared kitchen and free fast internet. I think we’ll park ourselves here for a few days.
