“Probably better than our experience”
Review of Brekkefossen

Regrettably, my knee and hip were acting up, so it was basically all I could handle to walk along the Nedre Brekkevegen to the trail to the waterfall, even at that point, the view of the waterfall was great, and it's an impressive falls. I can only imagine how much better it would be from up close!
Make sure you bring water, and maybe a snack.

Brekkefossen is a nice chance to take a short hike and explore some of the territory around Flam, a short walk from any of the local hotels you will be rewarded with stunning views of the surrounding area.

Allow a few hours in Flam for this hike, it's delightful views.
We were staying at the Brekke Gard hostel, which is closer to this location than the city center, so we had a bit of a head start. The path is fairly clearly marked, but takes significant effort to climb. Give yourself time to head up the hill. In the summer, it was rocky, but not slippery or challenging-just steep.
The falls themselves are not the most impressive, but still beautiful-and you get quite close. Really though the best part is that once you reach the falls you'll also have a beautiful view of the Flam valley. There's plenty of room up there for a picnic or taking some photos once you're up there.
Worth the trip if you're spending the day.

Walked to this waterfall following the guide from the Tourist office. Easy to find the path but would recommend as a minimum that you wear trainers or walking boots and are reasonably fit as it is a steep pull to the hillside where you can view the waterfall which was spectacular and loud!

A fantastic walk from Flam. You can get all the details of the route from the tourist information centre.
Bear in mind the terrain is a bit steep and you would need to be fairly physically fir to reach till the top of the waterfall, but once you reach there, you are transported to another world – stunning views from the top and the waterfall itself is magnificent.
Advisable to take a lot of drinking water with you and footwear that is comfortable as well as ones that are able to grip the steep terrain well.
We went for the walk at around 8:00 am and there was no one around and it was very peaceful.
