Boat trip on the Naeroyfjord and journey on the Flåm Railway
The journey starts by taking a coach down the steep and spectacular hairpin bends of Stalheimskleiva. The road down from Stalheim Hotel has 13 steep turns. We will then reach Gudvangen where a boat will wait for us.
The journey then goes out from the Naeroyfjord and into the Aurlandsfjord. The Naeroyfjord is now included on UNESCOs famous World Heritage List. Surrounded by mighty mountains of up to 1,800 metres high, this branch of the Sognefjord is amazingly beautiful. On the journey you have views of the small traditional farms. If you are lucky you will catch sight of the goats which graze along the edge of the fjord or of the seals lying on rocks.
Finally, we will reach Flåm where we will continue the journey by train. The journey on the Flam Railway is regarded as one of the high points on the Norway in a nutshell® tour. The 20 km-long train journey from Flam deep in the fjord to the mountain station of Myrdal takes around 55 minutes. On the journey you have views of some of the most magnificent mountain scenery in Norway with an ever-changing panorama of tall mountains and thundering waterfalls. Along the Flam Railway the train moves slowly or stops at the best views.
From Voss we will be transported by bus back to Stalheim Hotel for dinner.
