Owner description: The best way to see the fjord landscape is from above! This excursion brings you through the favourite hiking terrain among the locals, 1000 meters above the famous Sognefjorden. The path twists along the edge of the mountain in an altitude there are no trees growing, which means that you are able to watch miles of spectacular scenery around you during most of the trip. We walk up the mountainside as far as you are comfortable with, before returning down through a short distance of coniferous forest. The hiking trip ends by the viewpoint at Stegastein. Tickets may be purchased in combination with a sightseeing bus ride, or seperately if you have your own transport.

“Walking in Flam is OUTSTANDING”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

We trained to Berekvam, disembarked there and walked 11km back to Flam-- if you're a walker and have the time I HIGHLY recommend this option.

There is a bathroom at the Berekvam station and in August there were ripe, wild raspberries the entire walk down. The walk is along a road on which maybe half dozen cars passed us over the 90 minute walk along with LOTS of bicycles (apparently you can rent them at the top and ride down). The views are outstanding and we even passed a local K-7 school with 33 students in the entire school.

“Great Gallery on the way to the stave church”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

My son and I took the path out of town leading to the Stave Church. On our hike we came across an amazing shop that features handmade crafts from Norwegian artists. It is on the right hand side of the road, past the brewery just a bit.

The store was started as a hobby by two Flam residents who couldn't find local yarn. So, they opened the shop to sell yarn, but also now include goods from many Norwegian artisans. They have beautiful jewelry, amazing porcelain teacups - both made by artists who live in Bergen - as well as many other beautiful items that make high quality gifts.

Be sure to check it out!

“Easy peesey until the next day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

We hiked 6.5 mikes after disembarking that wonderful train and picnicked on the way so you understand we had good weather. The scenery was fabulous. The walk was easy until the next day when the downhill muscles made themselves felt as a proverbial pain in the b... Great guide and anchor man who ensured we didn't get lost or fall off the path. Lovely photo opportunities.

“hike near Styvi on Flam-Gudvangen boat tour.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013 via mobile

We took the least expensive (not as a package) Flam to Gudvangen boat tour (I think it was 285 NOK or $50-60 per person 1-way) and planned to take the bus back to Flam. There is no good reason to do a round trip on boat - it takes 2 hours as opposed to 20 minutes at much higher price and you'd be bored the 2nd time you see everything. We were able to request a special stop at Styvi, a tiny place with less than 5 farm houses, to do a short hike. You turn right before the first farm house, pass through 2 gates for sheep, and you will see this old postal trail on the east shore of the fjord going south for about an hour's walk. It is easy to follow, with beautiful (also well shaded) scenery, and not a single soul on the trail. We requested a pickup by the same boat on the return, which gave us 75 minutes to hike a bit. If you planned this better you could ask the NEXT boat in the same direction to pick you up (so you can take the bus from Gudvangen back to Flam). To make sure your boat sees you, locate the tall red light on a long pole on dock, and turn it on after you find the switch - this tells/reminds a boat to pick up passengers waiting on Styvi dock. It was a great experience, and the friendly sheep were a bonus point!
