Flåm AS

Flåm AS thinks holistically about tourist destination development and its philosophy is that the concepts of culture, nature and service should be mutually supportive in order to create the best possible customer experience. Through joint ventures, wholly-owned subsidiaries and partners, both international and national, we seek to put guests first, through all stages of their experience on their journey to the natural beauty that the fjord landscape offers.

Our Business Is Your Experience

Flåm AS is one of the leading travel companies in Norway and organises travel and highly-attractive experiences in Flåm and the rest of Fjord Norway. Today's tourists expect to sample a region's unique characteristics in an inspiring, efficient and well-organised manner. They also require comfort, culinary experiences and high-quality service.

The Flåm Railway is a major Norwegian tourist attraction – one of the top five in Norway. It is operated as a 50/50 partnership between Flåm AS and Norwegian State Railways. Between 1997 and 2016, the number of visitors has grown from 330,000 to approx. 900,000.

Through our joint venture and 50/50 partnership with Fjord 1 and The Fjords DA, Flåm AS brings the same market and commercial expertise to fjord cruises in the UNESCO World Heritage fjords as it does to Flåmsbana. With the vessel "Vision of the Fjords" and our state-of-the-art sales and distribution systems, we strive to deliver environmentally sound, innovative and profitable tourism.

History

Aurland Ressursutvikling and its wholly-owned subsidiary Flåm AS has developed a world-class travel destination. When the company was founded in 1997, interest in the Flåm Railway and tourism in the region had been on the decline for a long time. Through customer outreach, a vision of the region's potential and substantial investments, a destination has been developed on a step-by-step basis as an inspiration to other tourist destinations in Norway.

Our vision is "Fulfilling dreams, creating memories" 

Our mission is "Selling stunning, world-class nature experiences in a sustainable manner"
