Nestled in a kingdom of mountains and fjords, the scenic village of Flam serves as a good base for exploring some of the most beautiful sights of Norwegian nature.
Borgund Stave Church and Undredal Stave Church will appeal to history buffs. Step out of the city life by going to Naeroyfjord and Brekkefossen. Get out of town with these interesting Flam side-trips: Gamle Laerdalsoeyri (in Laerdalsoyri), Kjelfossen Waterfall (in Gudvangen) and Vindhellavegen (in Borgund). There's still lots to do: take in panoramic vistas at Stegastein Lookout, hike along Flam Hiking AS, pause for some serene contemplation at Flam Church, and see the interesting displays at Flaamsbana Museet.
