Beautiful and exciting

A great combination of beautiful scenery and an exciting high speed boat ride. Like the Flam Railway and the cycle down to Flam - this is not to be missed.

This is an incredible journey, in which the boat follows the inside of one of Norway's most beautiful fjords. You do a part of the boat trip (1 hour and a half) and then restorna by bus (30 minutes), or otherwise. Even in cold weather and with a small drizzle, we were able to take full advantage of the scenery.... More

Thank you for your visit to Flåm and the great review:) However, I believe you have been on another tour than ours. We have guided RIB tours between Flåm and Gudvangen, and we have no bus transfer or inside area on our RIBs. I am very glad you had a great experience on the fjord, and if you ever return... More

My husband and I booked this as part of our Norway in a Nutshell plan. I was worried about it being repetitive since the NIN ferry takes you though the same area of the fjord, but we are so glad we did! It's a totally different experience than the big ferry.. Much closer to nature and more personal. We had... More

My cousin & I came to Norway for a weekend and tried to cram in some fjord exploring alongside visiting family - this meant a 4.5 hour drive from Lillestrøm to Flam in a hire car on the wrong side of the road, with the threat of snow slowing us down...but we did it & we came to Flam because...

So glad we booked this boat ride -- gosh what an understatement. We donned heavy duty warm suits - head to toe with thick woolen mittens. The weather was cool, but when the boat driver hits the throttles, you are flying and it can get really cold! How many waterfalls did we see? Too many to count. Did we see... More

We enjoyed this boat ride so much, we were going to go a second time during our 5 day stay in Flam. The weather stopped up, but short of that it would be well worth it! Our guide Thomas was very knowledgeable, and the ride was beautiful. The sun peeked from the clouds, and we got some excellent views. Sun... More

This has to rate as one of the best things we've ever done. The safari was brilliantly and efficiently run and the staff were helpful, enthusiastic and had a great sense of humour. There were only 4 of us on the safari but the guide (whose name I embarrassingly can't remember) was very informative and engaging. We learned an awful... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 1/2 hour boat tour of the fjords. As mentioned before getting into all that warm gear is so funny! We felt like kids being dressed by Mom to go out in the snow!

This excursion is nothing short of breathtaking. We were there off-season and our boat was the only one out on the fjords for 2 1/2 hours. It felt like our own private paradise.
