my wife and I travelled from oslo with our 5yr old daughter. we travelled 6 hours by train to get to myrdal and then travelled to flam on the flamsbana train to flam. we were only in norway for the week and we were returning to oslo the same day. we only had 4 hours to spend in flam before our return train left. after a meal and an uphill walk to get some picures of the breathtaking scenery we realised we were too tired to make it to any other attractions by foot or bike. all the boat and bus tours did not suit our timetable. then we discovered the little train. we had actually passed it twice before but it was so unassuming and childish looking that we took no real interest.
the little train takes you close to the river, flam railway line, the waterfall, the fjord,the old church and through the beautiful village in just 45 mins. we got to see a lot more sights than we ever expected. and we were able to get loads of fantastic pictures. our little girl love it too.
the little train made our day as we we pressed for time and we were already worn out from travelling and sightseening that day and previous days.
if you have limited time or have kids or are not the athletic type then let the little train take you around flams beautiful sights. there is even information on the sights broadcast through the trains speaker systems. It only takes 45mins and you could even do this first to get an idea of where everything is located. it was only 250nok for the 3 of us.
thanks again little train. you made our day!!
