A Day in Flam

We will be arriving Flam via cruise ship on 19 June.

We will be doing the Flam Railway in the morning and in the afternoon, we plan to do the sightseeing bus to Stegastian Viewpoint.

We would like to seek advise on the following:

1. After the Stegastian Viewpoint tour, the bus can drop us off at Aurland or Flam. If we drop off at Aurland, is it possible to walk back to Flam. How long would it take. Directions on the route to take would be appreciated.

2. Other than the Vagen Church, are there any must do around the city centre of Aurland.

Thanks & regards

Sandy

Be aware that these are small villages.

On Google Maps you can see that the distance is about 8 km. You don't need directions, simply walk along the shore (locals can give details).

You can perhaps visit the shoe museum in Aurland, the "penny loafer" was invented there

Hi OsloViking

Thanks for the information. I think the 8 km walk is too long. We will take the bus back to Flam instead of dropping off at Aurland.

The Norway in a Nutshell ferry calls at Aurland on it's way to Flåm

Thanks klimaflyktning. This gives me the option of either taking the ferry or the bus back to Flam from Aurland.

I suggest the ferry - the bus is through a long tunnel.
