Highlights of the day

Paddling on the Aurlandsfjord from Flåm is like being in a postcard. Surrounded by steep mountains on all sides with beautiful waterfalls, and small settlements scattered along the shoreline. Among the highlights is a view of the old cluster farm, Otternes, approx. 5 km from Flåm. On the return trip to Flåm, you’ll have a panoramic view of the charming village centre.

Remember to keep an eye on the actual fjord. You might spot a seal sunbathing on a rock or a porpoise popping its head out of the water!
