A very nice scenic trip from Myrdal to Flam with more of the spectacular scenery that one can enjoy in Norway. Our train was crowded with the regular tour groups which created a bit of chaos but the trip was well orthwhile.

It's quite touristy but its fun for the first time visitor.. They will stop for 5 min at a waterfall along the way so be prepared to take photos / videos.. It can get crowded during summer.

There are views either side and everybody stands up and moves around. The train stops for 10 minutes at the waterfall so you can even get out to photograph it
