Another train full of passengers departs from Flåm station. During the next hour, it will take them from the glittering
Aurlandsfjord to Myrdal station at 867 metres above sea level. The Flåm Railway, one of the steepest in the world,
climbs through Norwegian mountains, past waterfalls, viewpoints and farming villages, before descending back down to Flåm. “For many years, Flåm has been one of Norway’s most popular tourist destinations because its nature is so spectacular, maybe even more so in the winter when snow covers the steep hillsides and the fjord freezes,” says Connie Konglevoll, sales manager at the centrally located Fretheim Hotel.
