Travelled on the railway as an excursion whilst on a cruise visit to Flam. Everyone was ushered to certain carriages allocated to our ship, but as normal the seats ran out, but looking back we're glad. We're glad becasue we chose to stand by the doors and so had a great view of what was coming. The views are absolutly stunning from the rivers, to the small villages you pass to the mountains and the waterfalls. One in particular Kjosfossen waterfall is magnificent. The amount of water and the speed it travels are incredible. And when the train stops so you take take in the breathtaking view of the waterfall all of a sudden you see a lady come out to the side of the waterfall singing. Our ride was about 40 mins each way and was well worth it.
