It’s a nice touristic Rao. Ride With good views You can combine it with a hike We went up, and rented a bike to go back to Flåm The price is a bit high for what it offers, but everything in Norway is expensive

Wonderful experience especially as we arrived by cruise ship and although we were unable to book through the ship we were able to book independently at a fraction of the price. The journey is delightful with a stop off at the waterfall where a lady...More

A great little train ride through some breathtaking scenery. There is a waterfall stop along the way and short video that gives you basic information. Free entry into museum at end so you can see how it was built.
