We booked our own tickets for the Flam railway and were on the first train of the day. Tickets were sold out on the day so do book these in advance. What a beautiful journey through the mountains and past many waterfalls. There was only a 15 minute stop at the top and many people got off for tours. It meant we were able to have a carriage to ourselves on the way back down allowing us to take photos through an open window. The carriage had been reserved for a group of Japanese tourists so there was no English commentary in this carriage, but it's worth doing if you are keen to take photos. Would also recommend the Flam bakery for lunch or a snack. The aromas of freshly cooked cakes and breads are amazing! After lunch we walked to Flam village (about 1.5 hours round trip). This was a lovely way to see local life and to walk by the crystal clear river. Read Less

It was a great trip with beautiful scenery. However on a very hot day the train was fairly uncomfortable.

We enjoyed the scenery, but train movement makes it hard to take photos. Highlight was dancing mountain and music at gorgeous waterfall.

The cruise to Flam is delightful. The town itself isn't. I wouldn't recommend the pricey railroad trip, but if you do it don't take the ship tour. You can book a ticket in advance or buy one at the town when you arrive.

booked the Flam railway independently, expensive but well worth it, not much else in Flam although the pub near the ship is good even at £10 apint!

Excellent. I recommend everybody do this tour, the sights are amazing. The food at the hotel you stop off at for lunch deserves a five star review on its own!

We decided against the train as we had taken many mountain trains before and this was costly and also fully booked months in advance. We really enjoyed our hike to Brekkefossen Falls.

Flam Railway with waffles and coffee at the turnaround. Hustled off and on the train at the waterfall and then time to spend at the hotel at turn-around.

We did not take a ship excursion. We took the Flam railroad trip which was nice. Flam port is a typical tourist stop. Over crowded and everyone jostling for position.

We rented a car right at the pier and enjoyed a leisurely drive to some spectacular views of the fjord.

The cruise line pre-purchased all of the railway tix forcing cruisers to book excursions if they wanted the railway experience. 150% mark up. Wouldn't do railway again. Highly overrated.

We walked around Flaam. It was raining but still picturesque. Spoke to a farmer while he was fencing and thoroughly enjoyed the views, waterfalls and town itself.
