Flåm Zipline: Scandinavia’s longest

From Vatnahalsen station you follow the signs to Flåm Zipline. From the deck by the zipline you have panoramic views of the lush valley below, and the old construction road Rallarveien zigzagging down the steep mountain side.

The zipline has a total span of 1381 metres and a height difference of 305 metres, and you can get a top speed of up to 100 km/h. Get ready for an adventure you will remember!

You land at the mountain farm Kårdal. Here you find Rallarrosa Stølsysteri and if their kiosk is open, make sure to try one of their homemade, traditional pancakes with brown goat cheese or jam and sour crème.

Cycle the Flåm Valley

Kårdal is also where you pick-up your bicycles for the approx. 15-kilometre-long cycle tour back to Flåm. The road is partly gravel, partly paved road and easy to cycle. Make sure to take your time to explore the valley on your way and to bring packed lunch or a sandwich from Flåm Bakery. There are plenty of idyllic places to stop for a picnic.

After 1-2 hours you cycle into Flåm. Park the bicycle at the quay near Flåm Marina by 20:00 at latest.
