One of the most spectacular railway journeys in Europe
Set in picture-postcard scenery at the end of the Aurlandsfjord, the Norwegian town of Flåm boasts one of the most spectacular railway journeys in Europe.
The railway, one of the steepest standard gauge railways in the world, climbs over 3,000 feet to the ancient town of Voss and offers magnificent views over the valley. Just over 12 miles long, you’ll see rivers cutting through deep ravines and waterfalls cascading down the sides of snow-capped mountains.
Flåm marks the innermost point of the famous Sognefjord region and makes the perfect starting point from which to explore its stunning scenery. If you’re a nature-lover, leave your luxury MSC cruise ship behind for the day and venture into the great outdoors.
Ride the thrilling railway to the Kjosfossen waterfall and restore yourself with toasted waffles and hot coffee before making the hike back down.
Whether you’re admiring what is reputed to be the most breathtaking view in Norway (Stalheim), experiencing the thrill of the region’s magnificent waterfalls or taking in the pretty ancient villages, this particular stopover during your Norwegian MSC cruise vacation will leave you with some visual impressions.
Although our excursion packages may vary, we always offer great deals on local sights, which cover all tastes and levels of fitness. We are confident you will have a really enjoyable day off the ship, and a chance to fill your holiday with some pure Norwegian air.
