Stay at the Flamsbrygga hotel on the Norway ski and fjord experience to combine skiing with fjord exploration.

Built in a typical Norse style with a Norwegian timber frame and adorned with driftwood, stone and glass throughout. The Flamsbrygga Hotel is on the edge of the Aurlanfjord waterfront, with impressive views down the fjord and only 50 metres from where the cruises depart. The hotel highlight is perhaps the Viking inspired stave church style bar and restaurant. A huge roaring fire is the centre point with a vaulted wooden structure like some sort of Viking Great hall. Fur throws adorn the place and there's a micro-brewery onsite with the food philosophy being Aegir beer (that's the brewery) in the food and with the food. The food is deliciously Viking inspired with the 5 course Viking plank with beer tasting being a popular choice.

Flam is not a big village, but even so, the location is great. On the fjord-front* and minutes walk to the Flam railway station. With the Viking Hall being a major tourist attraction in itself, the Flamsbrygga Hotel is a fantastic place to stay when exploring the Norwegian fjords.

*(there's a seafront so it makes sense to have a fjord-front as well)

What we like

  • Great location on the water overlooking the fjord
  • Viking inspired decor and Norwegian style building
  • Close to the train station and they can help with organising any additional trips you want to take at the last minute
  • Beer tasting sessions available - learn about the Ægir beer and brewing process

Worth knowing

  • Being right on the wharf front means views can occasionally be obstructed by cruise ships (though mainly a summer issue)
  • Aegir brewery is one of the best handcraft breweries in Norway

Top experiences in Flam:

Norway ski and fjord experience

The Flam Railway

One of Norway's major and most spectacular tourist attractions. Built at one of the steepest gradients in Europe the railway snakes it's way up from Flam. Up the fjord's cliffs on narrow mountain paths through a total of 20 tunnels that spiral in and out of the rock face.

The tunnels were hand dug from 1923 to 1940 when the railway officially opened, raising 867 metres from sea level 20km up to Myrdal taking roughly 40 minutes. You'll pass some spectacular views and frozen waterfalls, you could ride the train up and down all day without getting tired of the scenery.

The train terminates in Myrdal from where you can go back down to Flam or onwards to Bergen or Oslo.

Fjord Cruise

In Western Norway, Flam is in the middle of Fjord Norway, home to some of the most dramatic and best known fjords in the country. Many of the most striking fjords are in fact branches off the major inlets from the sea.

In case you were wondering, fjords were created by massive glaciation going below sea level over a period of around 2.5 million years. The glacial cycles carved the U shaped fjords out of the rock. Essentially the fjords were shaped by glaciers (or ice if you prefer). There are over 1,000 fjords in Norway.

Some of the most dramatic fjords are within reach of Flam including, Naeroyfjord, Lysefjord, Geirangerfjord, Aurlandsfjord and Sognefjord. All are linked by water so you can cruise to them by boat.

Fjord safari (RIB boat)

Similar to the Fjord cruises in the sense that you will be exploring the same choice of fjords, the safari experience differs in the fact that you are in a much smaller RIB (rigid inflatable boat) so can get up close and personal with what the fjord has to offer.

You'll be able to get within close range of much of the wildlife here such as seals, porpoises and eagles. And you can also opt for specific experiences such a cheese tasting or a safari dinner.

If you're particularly lucky you may even spot an Orca whale.

Segastein viewpoint

The Segastein viewpoint is simply unmissable, or rather you'll have massively missed out if you don't take a look. 650 metres above the fjord the viewpoint juts 30 metres out from the mountainside and from its edge, you have unparalleled panoramic views. You won't find a better view of the Fjords and surrounding landscapes.

From Flam, you can book a sightseeing tour to the Segastein viewpoint which takes care of your transport to and from the viewpoint, it's the easiest way to take in the vistas.

Viking village Njardarheimr

The Njardarheimr Viking village is in Gudvangen on the Naeroyfjord. I lot of very Norwegian sounding place names thrown in there. But pronunciation aside, the Viking village is an authentic place adopting the practices from 1,000 years ago. The people who live here really do live this lifestyle, so its more than just acting. 

To give a little history Gudvangen (where the village is) was an important place for trading during the Viking age. The Fjord the village is in, Naeroyfjord is named as 'the place of the gods' dedicated to the god Njord, fittingly the god of trading and sailing.
