Stuff to do in Flam for one day.

We will be staying in Flam overnight on our way on NiN from Oslo to Bergen. Will get to Flam around 1500 and leave at the same time next day. Our party will be me and my wife, 7 yr old son and one yr old daughter, I was wondering if someone can help me with what to do in that one day in Flam. Any suggestions/ideas welcome.

Thanks

Are you planning on doing the fjord cruise on Nærøyfjorden?

Stegastein view point is also recommended.

More info and suggestions on the tourist website for Flåm: http://www.visitflam.com

You could go on the Flam to Myrdal railway, round trip about 21/4 hours. Great views plus most 7 yr olds love train rides. The afternoons is probably the best time as cruise ships seem to be in dock early morning.

The OP is stopping in Flåm as part of NiN from Oslo to Bergen, so they have to take the Flåm Railway to reach Flåm.

Yes we are on NiN so will get to do train ride anyways. I read somewhat about bike rental and bike path going to Aurland is beautiful? any ideas?

Is there any merit in spending time in Myrdal or should we get the next train down?

We have a day in Flam off a cruise ship. One in our party will be in a wheelchair (she can walk short distances) so hiking is not an option for us.

Thanks in advance for any information

Myrdal is a rail junction in the mountains with small, small train station and a cafe. It is not a place I would spend time. I would return with the same train as I arrived with, unless you would like to check out the cafe:

Thanks Pippi2. As it seems there's quite a wait for the next train after the one we go up on, we will do as you suggest.

Would maybe getting off at Vatnahalsen and having a walk round there then catching the next train back down be a viable option, or would we miss out too much on the final part of the train journey?
