WINTER BY THE FJORDS

Winter by the fjords

There is something special and mystic about exploring the winter by the fjords: The fresh air, a unique light and a beautiful snow-covered landscape. It is peaceful. Quiet.

Beautiful Flåm is located right at the inner end of a branch of one of the world's deepest and second-longest fjord, the 204-km-long and 1308-metre-deep Sognefjord. Surrounded by steep mountainsides and narrow valleys, this area is paradise for anyone seeking the unique and spectacular wonders of nature!

Good transport connections make Flåm an excellent hub, easy to reach by car, boat, train or bus.
