Flåm­ is the destination of the 12-mile branch line of the train from Myrdal, a 50-minute ride that plummets nearly 3,000 feet into Flåm­ Valley. The tiny village lies at the end of the Aurlandsfjord, amid meadows and orchards, surrounded by towering mountains. A trip on famous Flåm­ Railway is a thrilling experience. Its track took four years to complete and leads through breathtaking mountain scenery, past cascading waterfalls and through hand-dug tunnels. At one point the train travels through a reverse tunnel in order to negotiate a gradient of nearly a thousand feet, making it one of the steepest anywhere in the world. It operates year-round - a great tourist attraction during the summer and a local lifeline during deep winter. Strolling around the few souvenir shops or walking in the picturesque Aurland Valley are popular pastimes. Guests interested in exploring on their own would enjoy a hike in the countryside. The picturesque setting among orchards and meadows draws visitors to this serene and peaceful place.

Gudvangen

6/10/2022

Tucked away in a quiet southern recess of Norway's largest fjord, Sognefjord, Gudvangen lies at the head of the beautiful Naeroyflord. From there Norway's steepest main road winds skywards - through 13 tortuous hairpin bends - from the depths of the stunning Stallheim Gorge. At the top are glorious views of Stallheimfossen waterfall and scenery of wild, monumental beauty. Sognefjord probes nearly 110 miles into the heart of the mountainous interior of Norway, skirting around the southern edge of the great glacier massif of the Jostedalsbreen. Surrounded by 5,500 foot cliffs wetted by veils of tumbling waterfalls, the fjord is so narrow in some places that during the winter, the sun never reaches the valley floor. Perhaps the raw wild beauty and solitude of this place inspired the building of Sognefjord's medieval stave churches - several fine examples can be seen here.

The region is famous for its beautiful scenery with high mountains and blue fjords, of which the Geiranger fjord is one of the most attractive tourist places in Norway. The climate is less severe than might be expected from its geographical location, with mild winters and cool summers. Ålesund, with its unique architecture, is the center of business and industry in Møre and Romsdal. As the sea, the woods and the mountains are easy accessible, the possibilities for outdoor and sports activities are excellent, both in the summer and winter season.

Torghatten, Norway

6/12/2022

Visited by kings, emperors and travelers alike, the mystery of Mount Torghatten has mesmerized many people from all over the world. Torghatten is a mountain with a hole right through it and it's not just a famous landmark, but a an opportunity to trek its granite armour. According to legend, before the light of dawn, a disappointed troll by the name of Hestmannen, who was in love with a young girl named Lekamoya, shot an arrow after her as she ran away from him. The mighty Troll King of Mount Somnafjellet saw this act so he threw his hat between the girl and the arrow, creating the hole. As soon as the first ray of light rose and peeked from the sky, all in it's path turned into stone.

One of the most popular sights in the Lofotens, this extremely narrow 1.25 mile long Norwegian fjord opens to a picturesque view of the Lofoten Islands landscape.  Navigating though the Trollfjord can be very intense depending on the size of your vessel and some larger coastal steamers scrape their sides on the rock walls during passage.  Visitors can enjoy a ferry ride through the fjord to visit Trollfjord Island, where they can learn about the 19th century “Battle of Trollfjord” between small-vessel fishermen and larger commercial steamship operators.
