You are here: HIKING TRIPS » FLÅM VALLEY
The train journey provides some of Norway's wildest and most magnificent scenery. On the 20 km-long train ride you can see rivers that cut through deep ravines, waterfalls cascade down the side of steep, snow-capped mountains and mountain farms cling dizzily to sheer slopes.
The Flåm Railway is one of the worlds steepest railway lines on normal gauge. The gradient
is 55/1000 on almost 80% of the line, i.e. a gradient of one in eighteen. The twisting tunnels that spiral in and out of the mountain are manifestations of the most daring and skilful engineering in Norwegian railway history.
Vatnahalsen is a small family-run hotel, and the Aksnes family have had the management
of the hotel for more than 25 years.
In Kårdalen, high up in the Flåm valley and close to the old Rallarvegen (navvies’ road), is the traditional summer farm of Rallarrosa. We make traditional brown and white cheese from fresh, unpasteurised goats milk. We learned the art of cheese making from the dairymaids who worked on the high farms in the mountains that surround the valley.
