My husband loved this hike, I was a little more ambivalent. The hike up from the road is quite steep and narrow in places; at one point you must cross a creek ( where I , a clutz) got my feet wet. The waterfall is...More

Picturesque walk from Flam up to the waterfall. Climb is challenging enough, a couple of sections were wet & muddy even in August but the view of the waterfall and the fjord from the top is well worth it. You can reward yourself with an...More

Great if it is your first waterfall in Norway, a very definition of average after some time. But the waterfall itself aside, a very good Flåm viewpoint. Assuming you will be trying to reach here from the port, you can divide the trip into three...More

It's gorgeous, and the panorama of Flåm is lovely. However, from the main town, you gotta walk through many farms before reaching the little wooden sign "Brekkefossen". Then the steep climb up for what must be 15-20 mins. We didn't mind it too much, as...More

This is a pretty good hike for beginners, taking around 1 1/2 hours to complete. Loads of amazing views on the way up until you come to the waterfall which is just breathe taking.

Excellent way to spend your day when on a cruise. No need for booking a tour. Just put on your boots and take off. Hike straight from the ship and burn some calories, this will take you about 3 hours. Beautiful waterfall, last part of...More

Brekkefossen is easy to get toto... The head of the trail is less than 30 minutes from the train and the walk is very scenic. You walk along a river, past cows, and see grass roof tops. However the hoke to the top is a bit... More
