Flaam Valley by Train and Bike
The Flaam railroad is one of the most interesting stretches of railroad engineering in the world. Only 12 miles in length it runs from sea level to Myrdal Station at an altitude of almost 3,000 feet. Leaving by train from the station situated in Flaam at the head of the Aurlandsfjord, you travel along the Flaam river, one of the best salmon-rivers in the West Country. On the right hand side is the Rjoande Waterfall with a sheer drop of 500 feet and the impressive peak of Vibmesnosi. After passing through the longest tunnel at Naali, a most fantastic sight is revealed. To climb the 300 m. high Myrdalsberg the line is built on 4 levels. From here you can view 3 of them, the train standing on the 4th. You can also see the old road that was constructed in 1895 96, in connection with the building of the Bergen Oslo Railroad that was opened in 1909. The road ascends the steep hills in 21 narrow hairpin bends with an attractive waterfall next to it. You will make a brief stop at Kjosfossen Waterfall to let all guests off the train in order to photograph the spectacular waterfall. You stay on the train to the top at Myrdal and then travel back down to Berekvam station, over half way down the Flaam Railway. Here you will leave the train where your bikes and equipment are waiting for you. Now we continue to Flaam by bike. The downhill bike ride follows a narrow gravel road along the river with spectacular views of the waterfalls, mountains and valley. If you like you can even fill your water bottle from the river and streams along the way.
