The cottages are 3 km from Flåm itself and the only way getting there would be to walk or take a taxi. Without a car this will be very inconvenient. The grocery is in Flåm proper, there is nothing up that valley.

You could rent bikes - there is bike rental in Flåm for the Rallaveien.

Bike rental at the Tourist Information Office on the quayside and a fairly flat ride on a small and quiet tarmac road to the hytter. You can see it all on Google Street View.

Great place to stay if you are reasonably fit and you can wave to the crowds going past on the train just behind the hytter.

No you cannot go by car from Flåm to Myrdal. Except for the train, hiking or cycling is the only option.

Use Google Maps and Street View and you will see you can drive as far as Berekvam. Might be a private toll road some of the way, you can 'drive' along it with Street View to check. The train line is higher up the side of the valley with more spectacular views. Worth every penny of the NOK250 fare for one of the most spectacular train rides anywhere in the world. Take the train up and walk down if you have time.

Depends on your fitness level. Not very hard, mostly downhill.
