Going on a fjord cruise when the snow covers the mountains and the waterfalls are frozen is a different and very spectacular experience. 

4. Aurlandsfjord and Nærøyfjord

The UNESCO-listed Nærøyfjord fjord cruise takes you from Flåm to Gudvangen, through both Nærøyfjord and Aurlandsfjord. This is the Aurlandsfjord seen from Stegastein Viewpoint. What a stunning winter landscape!

You are not quite in heaven, but almost. Standing at the elegant Stegastein Viewpoint, you will have the most breathtaking panoramic view of the fjord landscape. Feel the fresh breeze 650 metres above Aurland and the Aurlandsfjord.

7. The world's most beautiful train journey

Taking a journey through the Flåm Valley on the Flåm Railway, voted as one of the most beautiful train journeys, should be on everyone's bucket list. The Flåmsbana takes you from zero to 864 metres above sea level in only an hour, through the verdant Flåm Valley.

On your train journey through the Flåm Valley, the train makes a five-minute stop at Kjosfossen, so you can capture the moment by this roaring, beautiful waterfall. 

9. Lush and stunning nature

The Flåm Valley is a verdant paradise in the late spring, summer and early autumn. For the ultimate valley experience, start your journey by taking the Flåmsbana from Flåm to Myrdal, then walk or cycle through the valley back down to Flåm. 

10. Cycle through the colourful valley

It's no wonder that cycling from Myrdal to Flåm through the Flåm Valley is a popular activity!

The day trip to Aurlandsdalen, from Østerbø to Vassbygdi, is full of grandiose vistas of rocky landscapes, deep, lush valleys and cascading waterfalls and rivers. The valley is referred to as Norway's Grand Canyon – and for good reason. 


12. The Vetlahelvete gorge in Aurlandsdalen

The Aurland valley has a varied and dramatic landscape. One of the most spectacular experiences is when you reach the Vetlahelvete gorge.
